The SS&C GlobeOp Hedge Fund Performance Index offers a unique reflection of the return on capital invested in funds. It does not overstate exposure to, or the contribution of, any single strategy to aggregate hedge fund performance.

This is substantially lower than the equivalent correlation of other widely followed hedge fund performance indices.
