Dec. 31 (Bloomberg) -- The hedge fund industry remains on course to beat stock market returns in 2007, the Financial Times said, citing data from Chicago-based Hedge Fund Research.

The two main HFR indexes both beat developed market indexes including the FTSE 100, S&P 500 and Eurofirst 300, the newspaper said.

This year has seen previously out-of-favor strategies such as global macro, which bets on bonds and foreign exchange, return to form, the FT said.
