    HEDGE FUND ETF COMING SOON

    IndexIQ is launching a hedge fund ETF. It should start trading any day now under the ticker QAI. The fund will mimic the IQ Alpha Hedge Fund index.

    The benchmark for QAI resembles a fund-of-funds portfolio since it includes six different types of hedge fund strategies. The idea is to capture the entire hedging universe rather than singling out one or two strategies. The ETF includes hedging strategies covering long-short; global macro; market neutral; event driven; fixed-income arbitrage and emerging markets.

    QAI’s index will be rebalanced monthly. Entering the launch, its benchmark was weighted as follows: emerging markets (2.83%); long-short (-16.67%); global macro (13.83%); and 33.33% each in event driven, fixed-income arbitrage and market neutral.

      I did see this the other day. Goldman Sachs has a fund that tracks a hedge fund index. They are interesting. The hedge fund index has moved down much less than the market over the years but up faster. Not bad if you have to hold something. Just not sure about this particular one from indexiq.
