L/Sequity Stays Ahead Of The Pack

The Weekly Brief

Recent data releases in the U.S. have contributed towards stabilizing fixed income markets. Recently released data on wages and retail sales for February were below expectations, while the consumer price index in February grew just in line with the consensus at 0.2% month-over-month and 2.2% year-over-year. In this context, 10-year Treasury yields have stabilized around 2.85% and concerns over inflationary pressures and additional monetary tightening than currently priced in by the market have somewhat abated. This has been supportive for risk assets, in particular in the U.S. and Emerging Markets. In the hedge fund space, this has contributed towards extending the winning streak of L/S Equity and Relative Value strategies. So far during the first quarter, both have outperformed the remaining hedge fund strategies. On the contrary, CTAs continue to lag behind, to the extent that market turbulence in February forced them to deleverage their portfolios. This has prevented them from capturing the market recovery.
