CALGARY, June 7, 2011 /CNW/ - Auspice Capital Advisors. Ltd. is pleased to announce that the Auspice Diversified Program (Auspice Managed Futures LP), a managed futures strategy, is now a component of the Scotia Capital Canadian Hedge Fund Performance Index.

The aim of the Scotia Capital Canadian Hedge Fund Performance Index is to provide a comprehensive overview of the Canadian Hedge Fund universe.

The index includes both open and closed funds with a minimum AUM of $15 million and at least a 12-month track record of returns, managed by Canadian‐domiciled hedge fund managers.

Tim Pickering, President and lead portfolio manager for Auspice Capital Advisors states, "We are pleased to be included in the Scotia Capital Canadian Hedge Fund Performance Index. The Scotia Index highlights the significant outperformance of Canadian hedge fund managers relative to our global peers. The inclusion of the Auspice Diversified Program in the Index is another example of our growing presence in the Canadian investment landscape."
