Connor, Gregory and Li, Sheng (2009) Market Dispersion and the Profitability of Hedge Funds. Department of Economics Finance & Accounting NUI Maynooth.
We examine the impact of market dispersion on the performance of hedge funds. Market dispersion is measured by the cross-sectional volatility of equity returns in a given month. Using hedge fund indices and a panel of monthly returns on individual hedge funds, we nd that market dispersion and the performance of hedge funds are positively related. We also nd that the cross-sectional dispersion of hedge fund returns is positively related to the level of market dispersion.
