The estimated MTD performance for Hedge Funds (excluding Crypto Trading Strategies) is 1.2% taking the YTD number to 7.1%. The estimated MTD performance for CTAs is 0.9% taking the YTD number to 6.5%.
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
