(HedgeNordic.com) – Nordic hedge funds gained an estimated 0.6% in August bringing the Nordic Hedge Index (NHX) Composite to a year-to-date performance of 2.9%.

CTA/Managed Futures strategies had a stellar run during the month thereby recouping the losses experienced in the first half of the year.

Equity and Fund of Funds strategies were also positive on the month while Fixed Income and Multi-Strategy funds posted losses.
