New Haven Pension Invests In IndexIQ Hedge Fund Replication 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.
