This paper examines whether the problems that are outlined for hedge fund indices also exist for other indices that seem to be widely accepted. The drawbacks of hedge fund indices pointed out in the literature do indeed exist. However, in this paper, we point out that there are possible solutions to these problems. In addition, we argue that most of the problems are not specific to hedge fund indices, but also exist with well accepted instruments such as stock market indices.
