INDEX IQ uses smart solutions based on bespoke indices to build better portfolios.
We believe that ETFs should have a role beyond that of portfolio building blocks. That is the rationale behind IndexIQ, a brand aimed at developing solutions to help investors build better portfolios. We combine the benefits of an ETF structure with our broad set of expertise as an asset manager specialized in Equities, Fixed Income, Absolute Return and SRI. While others simply replicate benchmark value, we create it, bringing together our wealth of experience.
Our ETFs offer a high level of liquidity and transparency, making them an efficient tool for both private and professional investors. Additionally, the funds are flexible and diversified, thanks to the innovative, selective approach we adopt. Since managing risk also matters to us, our ETFs use physical replication techniques.
Our ETFs are listed on the Paris Euronext Stock Exchange and cross listed on the Amsterdam Euronext exchange.
IndexIQ provides innovative portfolio solutions, giving investors access to ETFs that benefit from alpha as well as beta. Our sense of conviction and responsibility, underpinned by the desire to build better portfolios for our clients, drives the philosophy behind this pioneering approach.
IndexIQ's smart ETFs seek to replicate the performance of benchmarks tailored towards the delivery of superior risk-adjusted returns, rather than investing based purely on market capitalisation of broad indices. We believe this source of diversification provides greater risk protection for our clients. It also means they can participate in long-term market trends, all within the convenience of an ETF structure.
All of our ETF create added value by referring to our own specially designed indices, unlike simple tracker funds.
IndexIQ's research and development process draws upon the expertise of more than 178 investment professionals at Candriam.
In certain cases, we will use Candriam's in-house responsible investment methodology to help our clients benefit from the risk-mitigating alpha brought by taking into account ESG factors. In such situations, we practice what we preach through the use of exclusions, engagement and proxy voting. This means that some of our funds go further in seeking to protect investors from long-term risks to corporate sustainability.
