Singapore, Singapore, March 01, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- The 130/30 concept has been a popular topic within the alternative investment industry, with the debate growing in focus and interest. Eurekahedge is proud to announce the launch of the Enhanced Equity (130/30) Fund database and directory.
The Eurekahedge Enhanced Equity (130/30) Fund database is the first of its kind in the industry and is being launched with 247 share classes, representing over 136 unique strategies. The current estimated assets under management in this sector stand at approximately US$60 billion, with close to US$30 billion raised in the last two years.
Coverage of the database extends from SEC-registered funds, to offshore products as well as segregated accounts, making it a truly unique platform fully devoted to the short-extension concept. These long/short strategies have a defined net exposure of 100% and gross exposure (i.e. 160% for a 130/30 fund), and characterise the fast-growing hybridisation of the alternative asset class.
Information on individual funds in the database includes detailed information on the background of fund manager and their strategy, statistics and performance of the fund, fee and redemption structure, investment profile, service providers and much more.
