Analyst Report

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.
