It was shown that the majority of institutions whose aim is to generate absolute rates of return, and what refers to it, to generate better rates of return than traditional investments irrespective of the market situation, broke this rule. Such measures were taken into consideration as: rates of return, risk measured by standard deviation, risk measured by beta, the level of alpha, the correlation of the examined funds with traditional assets and the Sharpe ratio. The research presented in the paper is a part of the wider research conducted by the author for over 200 hedge funds divided into different investment strategies.
