Newfound Research Announces Partnership With NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes

Stocks in this article: NDAQ

Newfound Research LLC ( www.thinknewfound.com) today announced that it has collaborated with The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (NASDAQ:NDAQ) to forge a new strategic partnership featuring rules-based, quantitatively enabled investment strategies created by Newfound. NASDAQ OMX ® and Newfound have agreed to create a suite of outcome-oriented co-branded indexes and to work jointly to promote licensing opportunities.

The initial indexes will include a Risk Managed Income strategy, a Global Defensive Equity strategy, a Target Excess Yield strategy and a U.S. Equity Dynamic Long/Short strategy.

NASDAQ OMX and Newfound expect that the new indexes will be available for licensing and implementation through separately managed accounts and, in some cases, through exchange-traded funds (ETFs). Both parties will dedicate resources towards marketing of licensing opportunities, which will include educational information about how indexing works and how these investment strategies might fit into a client's portfolio.

"NASDAQ OMX continues to focus on innovation and partnering with exceptional firms like Newfound, one of the most inventive and sought after organizations developing rules-based, outcome-oriented investment strategies and specializing in tactical asset and risk management,” said Dave Gedeon, Managing Director, NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes. “This relationship brings our respective brands and expertise together to develop a unique product family.”

“Newfound seeks strategic partners like NASDAQ OMX,” said Corey Hoffstein, Newfound’s Chief Investment Officer. “By combining our unique and complementary strengths, including Newfound’s quantitative models and NASDAQ OMX’s global brand, this partnership allows us to provide both retail and institutional investors with a full suite of structured investment strategy solutions.”

Tom Rosedale, Newfound’s CEO, said, "We are excited to partner with a leading, full-service index provider like NASDAQ OMX. We believe that NASDAQ OMX’s index construction and technology expertise and powerful brand can make our quantitatively enabled, rules-based investment strategies available to investors throughout the world.”
