Hedgies Not Doing Well Relative To S&P In First 6 Months Of 2013

By Lawrence Chan   on 2013 Jul 8 Mon 9:29:03

Something to think about, hedgies underperforming S&P by a wide margin.

It is not that the hedge funds are not trying because I know they want to do better. The problem is their ability to react to the current environment is greatly restricted.

Another issue pointed out in the article that funds using computer models to select buy/sell targets are in deep red is something very difficult to resolve as there is no real preceding historical environment where the central bankers keep pumping money into the financial system.

It is a market environment that change much faster than most hedge funds are created for.

Time for a new breed of hedgies?
