Institutional Investor article by Julie Segal based on the eight-year track record of MPI Eurekahedge 50 Tracker Index raises an important question: if the collective wisdom of top hedge fund managers results in index-like performance why take risks, headache and expense investing in large number of individual funds?
MPI today released eight-year performance data for its MPI Eurekahedge 50 Tracker Index that indicate its basket of liquid, retail exchange-traded funds can deliver the performance of a diversified portfolio of institutional-quality hedge funds.
“Evidence is piling up that allocators may be better off replicating the returns of the best hedge funds — a more complex version of indexing — rather than investing in them directly, ” writes Julie Segal with Institutional Investor in her piece about MPI’s latest research on Eurekahedge 50 index, developed in partnership with Eurekahedge, and the MPI Eurekahedge 50 Tracker.
Eight years ago, we partnered with Eurekahedge to develop a unique hedge fund benchmark. We review live performance of the index and its liquid tracker – MPI Eurekahedge 50 Tracker Index.
