With a history stretching back to 2003, the Market Vectors Hedge Fund Beta Indices use a patented methodology in seeking to capture the beta returns of universes of statistically similar hedge funds that exhibit in aggregate consistently high concentrations of beta. MVIS currently offers four regional and two global long/short hedge fund strategies.
