Abstract

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.
