IndexIQ Hedge Beta Indices Rise In June

Jul 9 2012 | 12:12pm ET

Hedge fund replication indices by-and-large outperformed other hedge fund indices in June, and IndexIQ's is no different.

The IQ Hedge Composite Beta Index rose 1.56% last month, and is up 2.35% on the year. But contrast, most hedge fund indices show losses of a few tenths of a percentage point on the month.

All six of IndexIQ's strategy indices were in the black last month, some by wide margins. The long/short index rose 3.03% on the month (3.25% year-to-date), the emerging markets index rose 1.97% (2.01% YTD) and the event-driven index rose 1.88% (2.52% YTD).

The IQ Hedge Market Neutral Beta Index added 1.06% on the month (0.65% YTD), the global macro index 0.87% (3.38% YTD) and the fixed-income arbitrage index 0.58% (5.26% YTD).
