The UCITS HFS Index recorded a moderately positive 2014, although it did not start into the year too well with a January performance of -0.15%. After it turned positive in February it never turned negative from a year to date perspective again, despite seven down months. The fact that the biggest monthly loss was only -0.29% contributed to this as well as that the highest monthly return (0.82%) occurred right in February. The UCITS HFS Index finishes 2014 with a performance of 1.62% for the year, only -0.24% below its all-time high just reached after the first week in December 2014.
