FlashReport January

Despite the tremendous focus on a few leveraged Long/Short Equity funds, epic short squeezes, and the impact of retail traders, January looks likes a relatively calm month, with the average hedge fund losing 0.1%. CTAs suffered into the month-end and lost 60 bps mainly as an effect of month-end action. NilssonHedge is proud to present an early list of almost 1000 managers reporting early returns for January. As per usual, Crypto Managers provided the most spectacular returns.

Nilsson Hedge provides a free CTA/Managed Futures and Hedge Fund database. The vast majority of the database covers CTA or Managed Futures Managers, using a variety of styles and strategies. In addition, NilssonHedge offers supplemental coverage of a number of Long/Short Equity Managers, Fixed Income Strategy, and Multi-Strategy hedge funds.

We note that this is an estimate for reporting funds, and that better performing funds typically report early. These estimates do not include funds that have stopped reporting. For the survivorship adjusted number, we would like to direct you to the NilssonHedge indices at
