Real Return & Inflation Hedge

IndexIQ offers investment strategies designed to provide a “real return” or a return above the rate of inflation, thereby providing a hedge against the U.S. inflation rate, to help investors fight the erosion of their purchasing power caused by inflation. Built upon rigorous academic and proprietary research, we believe these strategies represent a timely and important investment alternative.

IQ Real Return and Inflation Hedge products employ a rules-based process and utilize a broad array of investments in achieving their objectives, including having both long and short exposure, and investing in asset classes that are impacted by changes in inflation, such as equities, fixed income, commodities, currencies, and real estate.

Our rules-based approach allows us to bring inflation hedge solutions to investors in highly-liquid* and easily tradable products. By delivering solutions in an ETF structure, we make it easier for investors to hedge the impact of inflation.
