HFR Index Direct Licensing Program

The HFR Index Direct feed and licensing program addresses many of the data provisioning requirements that firms require for utilizing and redistributing HFR Index data. In addition, licensees also receive a dedicated feed of HFR Index data. The format of the feed is ideally suited to automating the process of updating and aggregating this information.

In addition, HFR Index Direct licensees also have the option of accessing HFR Indices Constituent Lists which detail the specific hedge funds comprise each HFRI and HFRX Index. This information was previously available only to firms that licensed the full HFR Database.

HFR also offers licenses for benchmarking, product replication and custom index development.
