All seven IndexIQ hedge fund replication indices positive in May


All seven of IndexIQ’s hedge fund replication and alternative beta indices, which underlie a variety of investment products including ETFs, mutual funds and institutional accounts, produced positive performance in May.

The IQ Hedge Event-Driven Beta Index led the way with a return of 1.99 per cent, followed by the IQ Hedge Long/Short Beta Index (1.42 per cent), the IQ Hedge Fixed Income Arbitrage Beta Index (1.28 per cent), and the IQ Hedge Composite Beta Index (0.97 per cent).
The IQ Hedge Global Macro Beta Index recorded the lowest return for the month at 0.32 per cent, with the IQ Hedge Emerging Markets Beta Index and the IQ Hedge Market Neutral Beta Index returning 0.36 per cent and 0.41 per cent respectively.
Designed as investable benchmarks that replicate the performance characteristics of sophisticated hedge fund strategies, the IQ Hedge benchmark indices were originally introduced on 30 March 2007, and have been calculating live since that date. IQ Hedge is the first family of investable benchmark indices covering hedge fund replication/alternative beta strategies.
