Credit Suisse Rebrands Its Suite of Hedge Fund Indices
New York, July 10, 2013 - Credit Suisse, one of the world's leading financial services providers, announced today that it has rebranded its suite of hedge fund indices, formerly known as the Dow Jones Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Indexes, as the Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Indices, effective July 10, 2013. All methodologies and rules for the indices remain unchanged.
The Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Indices are the industry’s premier asset-weighted hedge fund indices, designed to provide transparent, objective and accurate representations of the universe of hedge funds. The indices are constructed from a proprietary database of more than 9,000 hedge funds. Additional information about the Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Indices -- including research, performance and constituent fund information -- can be found at www.hedgeindex.com.
Credit Suisse also calculates a series of Liquid Alternative Beta (LAB) indices which are benchmarked to the Credit Suisse Hedge Fund Indices. The LAB series of indices seek to replicate the aggregate return profiles of hedge fund strategies using liquid, tradable instruments. LAB indices are priced daily and constructed using an objective and transparent rules-based methodology, making them candidates for index-linked products. Additional information about the Credit Suisse LAB Indices can be found at www.credit-suisse.com/lab.
