All seven of IndexIQ’s investable hedge fund replication and alternative beta indices produced positive returns in February.

The IQ Hedge Event-Driven Beta Index led the way with a return of 3.13 per cent.
This was followed by the IQ Hedge Long/Short Beta Index (2.16 per cent), the IQ Hedge Composite Beta Index (1.95 per cent), the IQ Hedge Emerging Markets Beta Index (1.75 per cent) and the IQ Hedge Market Neutral Beta Index and the IQ Hedge Fixed Income Arbitrage Beta Index (both 1.58 per cent).

Designed as investable benchmarks that replicate the performance characteristics of sophisticated hedge fund strategies, the IQ Hedge benchmark indexes were originally introduced on 30 March 2007 and have been calculating live since that date. IQ Hedge is the first family of investable benchmark indexes covering hedge fund replication/alternative beta strategies.
IndexIQ indices underlie a variety of investment products globally including ETFs, mutual funds, and institutional accounts.
