Hi. Well...after running high correlation co-efficients with managed futures strategies last year, the Ernst & Young New Zealand Absolute Return Index has proved its mettle to the end of April, +1.877%YTD to the end of April, a year on year return of 12.7%. The index is annualizing at just under 17%. Managed futures strategies are currently down on a YTD basis so it is good to demonstrate that New Zealand managers as a group are not a "one-trick pony". It is also great to see the equities strategies kicking in, with one of the managers, Pie Funds, posting a 14% return in April. Diversification sometimes works!
