New Haven Pension Invests In IndexIQ Hedge Fund Replication Strategy

Jun 21 2010 | 12:17pm ET

Dipping its toe into a pool that the Yale University endowment has long done laps in, the New Haven City Employees’ Retirement Fund has made its first investment in a hedge fund-like strategy. Emphasis here on the “like”: New Haven has picked a hedge-fund replication strategy run by IndexIQ, and has invested its $8 million through a managed account, HedgeWeek reports.

The IndexIQ Hedge Multi-Strategy SMA uses exchange-traded funds to replicate the performance of its Multi-Strategy SMA Index.
