Advisors and institutions alike are always looking for more ideas on how to improve outcomes for their clients’ portfolios. Could liquid alternative ETFs be the solution? Some institutional investors have been using these strategies for several years.
On the upcoming webcast, Liquid Alternative ETFs: The Institutional Perspective, Andrew McCollum, Managing Director, Greenwich Associates; Salvatore Bruno, Chief Investment Officer and Managing Director, IndexIQ; and Kelly Ye, Director of Research, IndexIQ, will discuss the results of an inaugural survey conducted by Greenwich Associates on the use of liquid alternative ETFs by institutions and present ideas to ensure your clients’ portfolios are optimally diversified to withstand a variety of market conditions.
ETF investors who are interested in alternative strategies can look to a number of various options. For example, the IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy ETF (QAI) provides a diversified mix of alternative strategies, including multiple hedge fund investment styles, such as long/short equity, global macro, market neutral, event-driven, fixed income arbitrage and emerging markets.
The IQ Hedge Macro Tracker ETF (MCRO) tries to replicate the risk-adjusted return characteristics of a global macro strategy that takes long and short positions on various assets based on the overall economic and political views of a number of countries or their macroeconomic principles.
Lastly, the IQ Merger Arbitrage ETF (MNA) employ a type of alternative, “directional hedge fund strategy” called merger arbitrage where the fund tries to capture the spread or difference between a stock’s trading price before a deal is announced and its eventual takeover price.
