Eurekahedge Launches New Directories

October 2, 2011 James Heinsman Hedge Fund News

Eurekahedge, data provider on the industry, has plans to launch new asset weighted directories called “Mizuho-Eurekahedge Index.”

Alexander Mearns, CEO of Eurekahedge, explained:  “With the current volatility in the markets there is increased demand for more manageable and predictable return streams. The Japanese pension fund industry is currently reported to have almost $100 billion invested in alternatives and inparticular is undertaking a great deal of research into this area.

“The absolute return fund industry is now back at $2 trillion and while it is much smaller than the $30 trillion mutual fund/retail fund industry it has far better annualized returns, less volatility and is growing at a faster rate. In tandem with this growth, we are seeing a strong demand from investors for liquid index linked products such as replication indices and ETFs. In addition, we expect the Mizuho-Eurekahedge Index to be the leading hedge fund index benchmark for investors worldwide.”
