The table below captures the performance of arbitrage funds. Remember, that arbitrage funds are the combination of equity and stock futures in a long / short combination. They have the asset mix of equities but are debt instruments in terms of performance and benchmarking. They are the traditionally used by corporates, HNIs and large institutions to park temporary surpluses in selected arbitrage strategies so as to be conservative and yet generate the alpha. They are suited more to aggressive fund parking.
