New York Daily News – The hedge fund industry has a public relations problem these days and you have to be a millionaire to invest in one anyway, but there’s a new fund for more modest investors that can offer similar benefits.
The IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker Exchange-Traded Fund doesn’t actually invest in hedge funds, but attempts to replicate their performance.
The fund does this by holding other ETFs that own various asset classes, including stocks, bonds, currencies and commodities.
Adam Patti, CEO of IndexIQ, the company behind the new fund, said it even enjoys some advantages over hedge funds, including the ability to sell on a moment’s notice. Hedge funds typically offer limited times to sell.
