The HedgePole UCITS Indices were launched in June 2011 and track the performance of all UCITS III (or higher) hedge funds qualified for the inclusion in the UCITS index based on the criteria defined in the HedgePole UCITS Index Methodology white paper. The constituent funds are equally weighted and the UCITS index performances are published on a monthly basis. As of December 2013 the calculation of the UCITS Indices has been ceased.
