Welcome to The Pivotal Point of View! Starting this month, we are going to provide a monthly snapshot of how the core strategies we track are performing. We are also going to look at the ongoing performance status of the funds in our database, broken out by AUM, and the key factors driving change throughout the year.
In our first installment of the series, we see how the month of May stacked up against the year so far. Hint: it was a tough month across the board. Almost all strategies experienced YTD growth with a pullback in May (except for volatility trading, which saw the opposite). What caused this? Check out the numbers below.
