IndexIQ Plans To Launch 15 More Hedge Fund ETFs

All of the following new hedge fund ETFs, created by IndexIQ, are designed to track the various underlying indexes. Most will consist of fund of funds structures, combining different subindexes and use ETFs to replicate the various strategies. It's a system that IndexIQ is implementing with the IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF (NYSEArca: QAI). For information on QAI, go to:
