IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Plus Fund
The First No-Load Mutual Fund Based on Hedge Fund Replication

Using highly liquid exchange-traded funds as the underlying investment components, IndexIQ offers a suite of hedge fund replication products that covers the top hedge fund investment styles. Our ETF-based replication strategies seek improved transparency, liquidity, no manager selection risk and other benefits relative to traditional hedge fund products. These solutions also help fill a gap in the industry, offering all investors access to lower cost, non-correlated investment solutions that eliminate the structural problems associated with the hedge fund industry in recent years.

The IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Plus Fund uses a proprietary investment process to synthesize the risk and return profiles of a broad range of hedge fund investing strategies, striving to deliver hedge fund-like performance in a low cost, transparent, and highly liquid investment vehicle.
