Just one MVIS long/short equity index positive in April

RELATED TOPICS​

Just one of Market Vectors Index Solutions’ (MVIS) six investable Long/Short Equity Indices, which use liquid ETFs and US Treasury securities to produce hedge fund-style returns without hedge fund pricing, opaqueness and redemption restrictions, recorded positive performance in April.

Market Vectors Emerging Markets Long/Short Equity Index returned 1.69 per cent for the month, while the other five indices all ended April in negative territory.

The Market Vectors Global Long/Short Equity Index was the month’s biggest loser, down 1.21%, followed by the Market Vectors Western Europe Long/Short Equity Index (-0.31%), the Market Vectors North America Long/Short Equity Index (-0.28%), the Market Vectors Asia (Developed) Long/Short Equity Index (-0.17%) and the Market Vectors Global Event Long/Short Equity Index (-0.02%)

With a history stretching back to 2003, the Market Vectors Long/Short Equity Indices use a patented methodology in seeking to capture the beta returns of universes of statistically similar hedge funds that exhibit in aggregate consistently high concentrations of beta. MVIS currently offers four regional and two global long/short equity strategies.
