Real Return & Inflation Hedge Indexes

IndexIQ has developed indexes designed to provide a “real return” or a return above the rate of inflation, thereby providing a hedge against the U.S. inflation rate. Built upon rigorous academic and proprietary research, we believe these indexes represent a timely and important solution.
