Advisors & Partners Emerging Manager Indexes Down In November
Both the A&P Emerging Manager Index (APEM Index©) and the A&P Emerging Manager UCITS Index (A&P EMU Index©) were slightly down in November with the APEM Index© returning -0.36% and YTD performance of 8.31%. The A&P EMU Index© returning -0.85% and YTD performance of 8.23%
November returns for hedge funds were generally quite mixed but were still on course to produce their strongest annual performance since 2013. Hedge fund performance, however, is still trailing the S&P 500 index which posted monthly gains of 2.81% on the back of encouraging macroeconomic data from the US, with year to date performance (January - November) of 18.3%.
Advisors & Partners LLP launched the A&P Emerging Manager Index (APEM Index©) on the 1st December 2015 and the A&P Emerging Manager UCITS Index ("A&P EMU Index©") on the 1st January 2017. Both the APEM index© and the A&P EMU Index© are designed to offer investors, who have a particular interest in early stage hedge fund investing, an effective research and benchmarking tool and to provide better visibility to asset managers who have launched new regulated offshore and onshore hedge fund investment products.
