All six of the MVIS 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 MVIS Asia (Developed) Long/Short Equity Index led the way with a return of 5.02 per cent for the month followed by the MVIS Global Long/Short Equity Index (+3.95 percent), the MVIS Western Europe Long/Short Equity Index (+3.51 per cent), the MVIS Global Event Long/Short Equity Index (+2.55 per cent), the MVIS North America Long/Short Equity Index (+2.07 per cent) and the MVIS Emerging Markets Long/Short Equity Index (=2.01 per cent).
With a history stretching back to 2003, the MVIS 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.
