Half of MVIS investable Long/Short Equity Indices positive in July


Three of Market Vectors Index Solutions (MVIS) six investable Long/Short Equity Indices recorded positive performance in July.

Each index is constructed using transparent, liquid ETFs and US Treasury securities to produce hedge fund-style returns without hedge fund pricing, opaqueness and redemption restrictions.

The Market Vectors Western Europe Long/Short Equity Index led the way wiyh a return of 1.80 per cent followed by the Market Vectors Global Long/Short Equity Index (1.61 per cent) and the Market Vectors Emerging Markets Long/Short Equity Index
(0.26 per cent).

The month’s biggest loser was the Market Vectors Asia (Developed) Long/Short Equity Index which was down -1.88 per cent, while the Market Vectors North America Long/Short Equity Index (-1.05 per cent) and the Market Vectors Global Event Long/Short Equity Index (-0.80 per cent) also finished the month in negative territory.

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.
