IndexIQ’s IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF named Best 40 Act Liquid Alternatives Fund by Hedgeweek


IndexIQ’s IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF (QAI) has been named “Best 40 Act Liquid Alternatives Fund” for 2016 by the readership of Hedgeweek. 

QAI, the oldest and largest liquid alternatives ETF, will mark its seventh anniversary in the marketplace on 25 March.

The announcement was made at the Hedgeweek Global Awards ceremony in London on 26 February. The shortlist of top performers was produced by Prequin, a leading source of data and intelligence for the alternative asset industry, and the final winners were voted on by Hedgeweek readers.

“At its launch, QAI created a whole new category of ETFs, giving advisors and investors access to an investment strategy that had previously been available only to institutions and high net worth individuals,” says Adam Patti, chief executive officer at IndexIQ. “Seven years later, the approach pioneered by QAI is more relevant than ever as investors continue to deal with dramatically increased levels of global market volatility, a trend that shows no sign of slowing as we head further into 2016.”

“Against that backdrop, advisors and investors continue to search for investment options that have the potential to provide exposure to the markets while at the same time managing volatility,” says Patti. “We’re very pleased that QAI has been recognised as the ‘Best 40 Act Liquid Alternatives Fund’.”

Launched in 2009, QAI seeks to replicate, before fees and expenses, the returns of the IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Index. The Index attempts to replicate the risk-adjusted return characteristics of hedge funds using multiple hedge fund investment styles, including long/short equity, global macro, market neutral, event-driven, fixed income arbitrage, and emerging markets.
