GHF Group Hedge funds Up 15.5% YTD


Early reporting funds suggest another month of steady, positive returns for hedge funds, with the composite GHF Group Index showing a 3.85% increase over the previous month and over 15.5% year to date.

George Town, Cayman Islands, August 27, 2009 --(PR.com)-- The increase in value was driven by positive sentiment in the underlying equity markets despite a slow start at the beginning of August. Earnings reports were better than analysts expected and high yielding currencies strengthened on an average of 5.4% over the dollar.

For the third month in a row hedge fund assets have grown, along with other alternative investment options. More investors are realizing the benefits of hedge funds as the major stock indices fall well behind in portfolio earnings.
Regional managers reported consistent gains across most locations as did emerging markets. What has shifted is the life insurance settlement fund, which is responsible for the majority of recent value increases. Originally predicted to show large returns in 2006-2007, these strategy funds are finally starting to show their worth. Managers are forecasting insurance settlement funds to drive earnings far higher than originally expected.
