Hedge Fund Replication Indexes

Based on rigorous academic and proprietary research, IndexIQ has created a suite of hedge fund replication strategies that seek to capture the risk and return performance characteristics of leading hedge fund investment styles.

IndexIQ employs a proprietary, rules-based investment process that selects components from a wide array of ETFs that cover commodities, currencies, stocks, bonds and real estate. This ETF-based approach allows us to bring the strong risk-adjusted return potential of hedge funds to all investors in low cost, highly-liquid and easily tradable products.

Benefits include:
  • Access for all investors
  • Daily liquidity — no lockups
  • Low correlation — powerful portfolio diversification tool
  • Portfolio transparency — clarity into what the investor owns
  • Rules-based methodologies — limits manager subjectivity
