Leading index sector expert Jim Wiandt has joined the advisory board of IndexIQ, a developer of innovative index products for ETF sponsors, mutual fund companies, asset management firms, hedge funds and institutions including pension funds, endowments and foundations.

Wiandt is the president of Index Publications, editor of the Journal of Indexes and publisher of Exchange Traded Funds Report and IndexUniverse.com, a source of news about product and market developments related to index funds, ETFs, index derivatives and the investment strategies that use these financial tools.

He was formerly publisher of IndexFunds.com and is the author of the book Exchange Traded Funds. As a member of IndexIQ’s advisory board, Wiandt will provide assistance and guidance as IndexIQ brings index-based products to the marketplace.

‘Having someone of Jim’s stature in the indexing industry join our advisory board offers a further endorsement of the approach we are taking in creating innovative index products for the global investment management community,’ says IndexIQ chief executive Adam S. Patti. ‘We look forward to the benefit of his experience in the indexing world.’

The firm’s index products aim to capture the key corporate and market-related attributes often considered predictive of strong operating performance and long-term stock appreciation. Many of these attributes, while qualitative and perceptual in nature, have until now not been quantified in a comprehensive and systematic way.

‘This is a time of great change and creativity in the field of indexing, and IndexIQ is among the most innovative firms currently active in the space,’ Wiandt says. ‘I look forward to contributing to the firm as a member of the advisory board.’

Based in Rye Brook, New York, IndexIQ is a developer of quantitatively derived index products and uses its proprietary methodologies to create investment products for the institutional, high net worth and retail investor markets.
