First No-Load, Open-End Hedge Fund Replication Mutual Fund Marks Three-Year Anniversary; Receives 4-Star Overall Morningstar RatingTM

The IQ Alpha Hedge Strategy Fund (IQHIX, Institutional Share Class; IQHOX, Investor Share Class), the first no-load, open-end mutual fund designed to replicate broad-based hedge fund performance characteristics, marked its three-year anniversary on June 30th, the fund’s sponsor, IndexIQ, announced today. Based on its three-year track record as of June 30, the fund was given a 4-Star Overall Morningstar Rating TM and was ranked in the top 2% of the 71 funds in the Multi-alternative category based on risk-adjusted performance.

“The past three years have been among the most trying that investors have faced in more than half a century and ‘traditional’ hedge funds have certainly not been immune, as reports have shown that more than 3,400 of them have shut their doors since the start of the financial crisis,” said Adam Patti, Chief Executive Officer at IndexIQ. 1 “What’s emerged among investors is a new set of demands for alternative investment products, including better transparency, greater liquidity, and lower costs. IQHIX has delivered on all of those fronts, while also delivering solid performance.”

“IQHIX has led the way in making available a whole new category of alternative investment products designed to allow investors of all types and sizes to add hedge-like exposure to their portfolios,” added Patti. “Investors have rapidly adopted IQHIX as a core alternative investment holding in their portfolios and, in many cases, as a replacement for traditional Hedge Fund-of-Funds exposure. The Alpha potential of hedge fund investing traditionally had been available only to the institutional and ultra high net worth investing worlds, but our mutual fund, and our related family of hedge fund replication Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs), helped change those rules and provide access to all.”

The IQ Alpha Hedge Strategy Fund uses a proprietary rules-based methodology to replicate the returns of six major hedge fund strategies: Equity Long/Short; Global Macro; Emerging Markets; Fixed Income Arbitrage; Equity Market Neutral; and Event Driven. Alpha is sought by optimizing the relative index weights among these six hedge fund strategies.
