本文FRM考试网小编,将本题翻译为中文内容如下:

假设一个对冲基金提供了一个大的正值α。
 
该基金可以利用股票的多头和空头头寸。
 
市场在此期间上涨。基于这些信息,这是正确的吗?

A、如果基金净值为正值,那么阿尔法的a11必须来自市场。

B、如果基金净负面测试,部分α来自市场。

C、如果基金的净收益为正数,部分α来自市场。

D、如果基金净负值β,α必须来自市场。

答案:C

由于市场上涨,具有正面测试版的投资组合将因其市场效应而获得部分积极业绩。

由于市场的影响,负beta的投资组合部分会产生负面的表现。答案A)不正确,

因为基金经理可能仍然通过明智的选股方式产生一些alpha。

答案B和D是不正确的,因为与市场上涨相结合的负面测试版应该会导致alpha的下降,而不是上升。
