The Dow Jones Hedge Fund Balanced Portfolio Indexes
(DJHFBPIs) also will be suspended, according to the
announcement. The decision to halt publication of the
benchmarks is the result of the temporary measures taken
by the investment manager of the managed account platform
that supports the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Strategy
Benchmarks and Dow Jones Hedge Fund Balanced Portfolio
Indexes to temporarily reduce the risk profiles of some
of its managers.
Index values for the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Equity Long/Short and Equity Market Neutral Strategy Benchmarks are available through October 31, 2008, the announcement said.
No changes have been made to the Dow Jones Hedge Fund Strategy Benchmarks for Convertible Arbitrage, Distressed Securities, Event Driven and Merger Arbitrage, which will continue to be published on an end-of-day basis.
