"Market Neutral is one of the largest hedge fund investment styles, both in terms of the number of funds and in the amount of assets being put to work. After incubating the index underlying QMN for four years, we felt it was an excellent time to roll out this strategy, particularly given the volatility and uncertainty inherent in today's market environment."
The QMN is the newest in its category. Existing offerings are Hedge Multi-Strategy Tracker ETF
