With complex strategies, hedge fund managers want to avoid losses and also achieve returns in sideways or down markets. The first half of 2022 was a test for her - and not everyone passed it.

The first six months of this year were a challenge for investors. Even professionals had to struggle with the shaky markets. This is shown by a current study by Lupus Alpha. Together with the data provider Refinitive, the Frankfurt Fundhaus regularly examines the performance of so -called liquid alternatives. This denotes hedge fund strategies in the coat of regulated funds that are also available for private investors. The result of the latest investigation: It is not always worth copying the strategies of the professionals.

‘Red Bull are strategically mostly aggressive, Ferrari react’

  ‘Red Bull are strategically mostly aggressive, Ferrari react’ Red Bull showed in Hungary that they are "strategically mostly aggressive" whereas Ferrari "react more"Ferrari and Charles Leclerc were handed the perfect opportunity to take points off Max Verstappen at the Hungarian Grand Prix, Ferrari 2-3 on the grid with the reigning World Champion down in 10th place after a power issue in qualifying.

On average, managers of Liquid alternatives managed to keep the losses in the first half of the year. While the MSCI World crashed by almost 20 percent and even recorded EUR 12.3 percent of EURO-state bonds, alternative investment funds made only 1.6 percent minus. In doing so, they did what they are expected, namely: in an environment in which both stocks and bonds give in to provide stability.

When you look closely, there were big differences in performance in hedge fund strategies in the coat of regulated funds. Managers who rely on rising share prices with a debt lever made up to 20 percent minus. On the other hand, anyone who had relied on falling courses (in technical jargon: short), ended the first half of the year with up to 19 percent plus.

Alliance leader says O’Neill comments on violence during Troubles were ‘wrong’

  Alliance leader says O’Neill comments on violence during Troubles were ‘wrong’ The Sinn Fein vice president is facing criticism from unionists, Alliance, the SDLP and some victims groups.Ms O’Neill, who is poised to become first minister if powersharing government at Stormont is restored, has been strongly criticised by unionists and some victims groups for her comments on the past.

bets on rising or falling courses, possibly with lever, are the two opposite poles of alternative investment strategies. In this respect, the different performance is not surprising. It is more interesting, like managers, whose success depends less on the market direction. This shows that with a market -neutral stock strategy, an average of three percent return was possible in the first half of 2022.

stabilizers for the Depot

market-neutral funds, even over five years with 2.7 percent per year, are slightly within plus-unlike short funds, the winners of the first half of the year. Because those who rely on falling courses have stood against the market in recent years and have been punished with losses.

As part of a market -neutral strategy, hedge fund managers, for example, rely on the fact that an investment class develops better relative to another. So you can also collect a profit if both investment classes fall - as long as one falls less than the other. Lupus Alpha and Refinitive figures show that it can make sense to use market -neutral strategies to secure the portfolio. However, they also confirm that corresponding funds are not the top return bringer than which they are sometimes misunderstood.

  PlanetF1’s top 10 drivers of the F1 2022 season so far: Max Verstappen, Lewis Hamilton and more How do the Formula 1 drivers rank for their performances in the first half of the 2022 season? Here's the top half of our 'grid'.Who will be lying back on their vacation sunbed quietly content with their performance so far? And which drivers may have to snub that tempting cocktail to spend more time poring over the data to see where they can improve?

The losers of the first half of the year also include managers who use currency strategies and want to benefit from exchange rate differences in different ways. They recorded an average of 9.3 percent loss. They are two percent under water on a five -year perspective. The bad result may be due to the fact that expectations on the central banks' monetary policy have been moving currency markets in recent months. However, funds that invest the majority of their assets in cryptocurrencies are also among the alternative currency funds in the Lupus alpha study. Such products are likely to suffer from the fact that the course of the most important cryptocurrency Bitcoin has dropped significantly since April.

The first half of 2022 showed above all: If you want to make a profit, you have to avoid losses. Because to make up for this. Only a few funds that had in the meantime made more than 7.5 percent loss of maximum loss to the green area again by the end of June.
