One can seriously question 15 Absolute neutrality can prove too restrictive. A total absence of directional exposure would require, among other things, neutrality in terms of geographic regions, sectors, style and credit, and also durations, in the case of bonds, statistical sensitivity to market data, in the case of equities, changes in volatility regimes, and so on. 16 Historically, these strategies have always played a fairly marginal role in the hedge funds universe. 17 That was what really happened to the funds with positions in collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) in May 2005 – the hedging in place did not work.

The latter is thus a great help in the financial asset valuation model. More intuitively, one can understand that an optimum with a constraint (no short selling allowed) cannot be more efficient than an optimum without a constraint. It is therefore amazing that the keenest supporters of the index-linked approach are sometimes against short selling, even though the market portfolio might thus be suboptimal. 2 Transfer of Risk Another way of perceiving hedge funds’ contribution to the financial markets is to break down their performance into risk premiums (a typical risk management approach).

The objective of the two pillars of the portfolio is not to cancel each other out, but to obtain exposure to factors that would be inaccessible using traditional strategies. These specific exposures are sometimes called ‘alternative exposures’. The transaction provides access to a financial asset formerly included in another asset. In this case, there is no longer any real notion of arbitrage, but rather, true directional exposure to rises and falls in synthetic financial assets. 17 The hedge fund strategies are thus not exempt from the influence of the equity market, whether that influence be direct (dynamic, nonlinear directional exposure to the equity market), indirect (exposure to alternative risk factors with more or less complex links to the equity market) or even temporary.
