EquNev-K1T Capital is a 100% systematic hedge fund, trading in the largest 900 companies listed on the US stock market (S&P 900). In August, Hedge Fund Research’s Fund Weighted Composite Index (FWC) fell 1.87% to 12,443.31, paring the year-to-date performance for the FWC to a gain of 0.2%. The August decline for the FWC was the worst monthly performance since May 2012. However, the EquNev-K1T capital fund returned 3.24% in August even as the benchmark US S&P index gave –6.02%. Almost all systematic hedge funds lost money in August, including Renaissance (-5.71%), Winton (-4.3%), Brevin Howard (-3.03%) and Cantab (-10.36%), data from Hedge Fund Research showed. “This is what hedge funds are expected to do. Protect investors against massive “fat tail” days like what August witnessed,” said Kapil Khandelwal, director at EquNev Capital and board member EquNev-K1T. EquNev-K1T’s strategy provided Indian investors with risk diversification, portfolio allocation and a natural hedge against the rupee’s depreciation as an alternative asset with minimal risks, he added.
