IndexIQ, which recently introduced the first exchange-traded funds to replicate hedge funds, has filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission to launch 15 more.

Each will effectively splice and dice hedging strategies into different categories. 

All will follow underlying indices created by IndexIQ. Most will consist of fund of funds structures combining different sub-indices and will use ETFs to replicate the various strategies, as with the IQ Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF launched in March.

An exception is the CPI Inflation Tracker ETF, which will try to match the returns of the Consumer Price Index, not on a monthly basis but tracking rolling 12-month returns of the inflation benchmark.

The fund, which will be rebalanced monthly, will aim to replicate the CPI’s inflation exposure by investing in broad asset classes, including US large caps, non-US equities, US government bonds of all maturities, non-US sovereign debt and currencies, and commodities.
