NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Money managers would love to build an index fund that tracks the average hedge fund. Over long periods, hedge fund benchmarks have outpaced the S&P 500. But it has proved impossible to create a hedge fund tracker.The problem is that to assemble a typical index fund, you must buy many of the issues in an asset class. That's not hard for S&P 500 funds, which hold all the stocks in the benchmark.
