IQ Merger Arbitrage Index leads four of six IndexIQ IQ Hedge Indices higher in May


IndexIQ has announced the performance of its family of six IQ Hedge Indexes with four positive, led by a 1.31 percent return for the IQ Merger Arbitrage Index. 

Two – the IQ Hedge Global Macro Index and the IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Index – showed negative returns for the period with returns of -1.25 per cent and -0.08 per cent, respectively.

“Volatility has been growing over the last couple of months, which is broadly good for hedge funds,” says Adam Patti (pictured), Chief Executive Officer at IndexIQ. “There are enough uncertainties looming over the markets to keep things interesting through the summer as we can see from the drama surrounding today's Brexit vote.”

Designed as investable benchmarks that replicate the performance characteristics of sophisticated hedge fund strategies, the IQ Hedge Indexes comprise the first family of investable benchmark indexes covering hedge fund replication/alternative beta strategies.
