One out of seven IndexIQ investible benchmark hedge fund replication indexes positive in March


Just one of IndexIQ’s family of seven proprietary hedge fund replication and alternative beta indexes finished March in positive territory.

The IQ Hedge Fixed Income Arbitrage Beta Index (IQHGFIB) was the sole positive performance, but only just, with a return of 0.02 per cent.

The month’s biggest loser was the IQ Hedge Emerging Markets Beta Index (IQHGEMB) at -0.62 per cent, followed by the IQ Hedge Long/Short Beta Index (IQHGLSB) (-0.57%), the IQ Hedge Composite Beta Index (IQHGCOB) and the IQ Hedge Global Macro Beta Index (IQHGGMB) (both -0.28%), and the IQ Hedge Market Neutral Beta Index (IQHGMNB) (-0.20%). 

The IQ Hedge Event-Driven Beta Index (IQHGEDB) also finished in negative territory with a return of -0.03 per cent.

The IQ Hedge Indexes are increasingly being used as the basis of investment products worldwide, and as benchmarks for advisors to determine how well their actively managed hedge funds and alternative mutual funds are actually performing.

IndexIQ Indexes underlie a variety of investment products globally including ETFs, mutual funds, and
institutional accounts.
