NASDAQ OMX Launches Two New Indexes In The NASDAQ IBIS Index Family

Stocks in this article: NDAQ

NEW YORK, Feb. 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The NASDAQ OMX Group, Inc. (Nasdaq:NDAQ) has introduced two new indexes on the Global Index Data Service 2.0 (GIDS 2.0) - the NASDAQ IBIS Focused Growth Index (NQIBIS); and the NASDAQ IBIS Focused Growth Total Return Index (NQIBIST).

"These new indexes offer the unique viewpoint of accessing an absolute return strategy, while maintaining a rules-based and rigorous selection process," said Dave Gedeon, Managing Director of NASDAQ OMX Global Indexes. "Partnering with IBIS Capital allows the market to benefit from both the tactical allocation models and rules-based index tracking."

The NASDAQ IBIS Focused Growth Index utilizes IBIS Capital's Quantitative Tactical Global Rotation Strategy, and will invest in exchange-traded funds covering Large Cap U.S. equities, Small Cap U.S. Equities, Developed Market Equities, and Emerging Market Equities.

The selection of assets is determined through a proprietary technology for Relative Strength. During periods of weakness across global equity markets, the index will shift into either short-term, medium-term, or long-term U.S. government bonds, depending upon prevailing interest rates.

"We are excited to partner with Nasdaq OMX Global Indexes, a pioneer in the space of innovative indexes," said Neal McNeil III, CEO of IBIS Capital. "For decades investors have relied on traditional indexes to benchmark their performance. These new indexes will allow investors to think about benchmarking their portfolios globally and dynamically, with a focus on downside protection and upside participation of the equity markets."

For licensing inquiries about the NASDAQ IBIS Focused Growth Index as a model portfolio for separately managed accounts, or for registered products offered by ETF providers or mutual fund advisors, please call NASDAQ OMX Licensing Global Data Sales at (301) 978 8050.
