In the past decade the number of hedge funds in Canada has grown significantly and their performance as a group has been noteworthy. With this growth and performance has come increased interest in Canadian hedge funds by high net worth families, not-for-profit organizations and institutional investors, both in Canada and globally.
BULLWEALTH has developed proprietary hedge fund indices that are published monthly through our BW Canadian Hedge Fund Index and our strategy specific Sub-Indices. The BW Canadian Hedge Fund Index and related Sub-Indices are designed to provide a comprehensive overview of the performance of the Canadian hedge fund universe based on a database of returns for over 300 distinct Canadian hedge funds. The inception date of the Index and Sub-Indices is January 2003.
These indices help facilitate effective analysis of Canadian hedge funds versus their peers.
