This hedge fund replication ETF seeks to deliver returns reflective of a variety of techniques that have historically been implemented by hedge funds and other sophisticated investors. QAI relies on a quant-based methodology to deliver absolute returns, and has the potential to exhibit low correlations to stock and bond ETFs. Investors should be aware, however, that QAI isn't likely to deliver huge gains that some might expect of hedge funds; it is primarily designed to smooth overall portfolio volatility and function as a non-correlated asset. QAI might make sense in small doses within a stock-and-bond portfolio, and can be a powerful tool for accessing investment strategies that would otherwise be out of reach or prohibitively expensive.
The adjacent table gives investors an individual Realtime Rating for QAI on several different metrics, including liquidity, expenses, performance, volatility, dividend, concentration of holdings in addition to an overall rating. The "A+ Metric Rated ETF" field, available to ETFdb Pro members, shows the ETF in the Long-Short with the highest Metric Realtime Rating for each individual field.
