IndexIQ, a developer of index-based alternative investment solutions, has announced that Paul Mazzilli has been named senior advisor to the firm and a member of its advisory board.

Mazzilli has over 35 years’ experience in the investment business and most recently was an executive director at Morgan Stanley and director of the firm’s ETF research team covering index-linked ETFs and actively managed closed-end fund companies.

His coverage universe included a broad range of funds listed on US exchanges that invest in equities in the US and in international regions and countries as well as taxable and municipal fixed income, commodities and currencies.

Among Mazzilli’s roles at Morgan Stanley, which he joined in 1975, was the oversight of strategic equity portfolios products and asset allocation models using ETFs.

Mazzilli’s team was the first to provide research coverage on index-linked ETFs and won many awards in this area.

‘Paul Mazzilli is one of the leading analysts in the rapidly evolving field of exchange traded funds and represents a very strong addition to the IndexIQ team as we build upon our leadership in the alternative investment space,’ says Adam Patti, chief executive officer at IndexIQ. ‘Given Paul’s long time expertise in developing sophisticated asset allocation models, we are excited to work with him in developing products for the advisor community and we are pleased to have Paul’s vision and insight as a member of our team.’

Mazzilli adds: ‘IndexIQ has built a solid foundation in the alternative investment space and is a pioneer in some of the fastest-growing and most advanced areas of investment management. I look forward to working with IndexIQ as they continue to pave the way for a style of investing that addresses many of the problems experienced by today’s investors, by offering products with similar performance characteristics, but with greater transparency, higher levels of liquidity and lower cost. Our intention is to work together to create investable portfolios designed to provide diversification, liquidity, transparency and other key benefits, which are increasingly important in today’s volatile markets.’
