All six MVIS investable long/short equity indices negative in January


All six of Market Vectors Index Solutions (MVIS) investable Long/Short Equity Indices recorded negative performance in January.

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 Global Long/Short Equity Index was the month’s biggest loser down 4.84 per cent, closely followed by the Market Vectors Western Europe Long/Short Equity Index (-4.34 per cent) and the Market Vectors Asia (Developed) Long/Short Equity Index (-3.36 per cent).
The Market Vectors Global Event Long/Short Equity Index, Market Vectors North America Long/Short Equity Index, and Market Vectors Emerging Markets Long/Short Equity Index meanwhile recorded smaller losses of  -1.63 per cent, -1.48 per cent and -1.17% respectively.
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.
