All six of IndexIQ’s family of IQ hedge absolute return indices recorded a positive performance in July.

The IQ Hedge Market Event Driven Index led the way with a return of 2.77 per cent for the month, followed by the IQ Hedge Long/Short Index which was up 2.59 per cent and the IQ Hedge Global Macro Index, up 1.13 per cent.
The IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Index, the IQ Merger Arbitrage Index and the IQ Hedge Market Neutral Index recorded returns of 0.93 per cent, 0.64 per cent and 0.29 per cent, respectively.
“We saw markets relax a little in the month, as some of the Brexit anxiety receded, and investors returned to risk assets,” says Adam Patti (pictured), chief executive officer at IndexIQ. “Alternative assets continued to be attractive, as investors considered the next major wild card on the calendar – the US presidential election.”
