Six out of seven of IndexIQ’s investable benchmark hedge fund replication indices produced positive returns in August, according to figures released by the company.

IQ Hedge Long/Short Beta Index was the top performer returning 2.23 per cent for the period, while the only index in negative territory was IQ Hedge Emerging Markets Beta Index (-0.01 per cent).

The Global Macro Beta Index rose 0.24 per cent, the Event-Driven Beta Index 0.30 per cent, the Market Neutral Beta Index 0.42 per cent, the Fixed Income Arbitrage Beta Index 0.82 per cent, and the Composite Beta Index 0.67 per cent.
