GURU Fund Description

GURU tracks an equal-weighted index that attempts to mimic concentrated equity positions taken by large hedge funds, as reported in public filings.

GURU Factset Analytics Insight

GURU selects firms using a copycat approach, piggybacking on accomplished stock-pickers. The fund's index looks at published holdings of large hedge funds, focusing on those with concentrated stakes in US-listed securities. Securities selected in this manner are equally weighted. GURU's free-riding method is intuitive and transparent, but basing a portfolio on lagged quarterly snapshots of notoriously nimble hedge funds seems like a tough way to make a living. However, the fund found huge success since its June 2012 launch, with AUM swelling on strong inflows and rock-star 2013 returns. Returns cooled in 2014, but not before issuer Global X launched similar funds riding GURU's success: GURX and GURI, which compete in the small cap and international markets, respectively. Here, GURU competes directly with ALFA. The fund charges a high fee but can be traded without excessive cost.
