QED Fund Description

QED tracks an index that seeks to replicate the returns of hedge funds pursuing event-driven strategies. The index uses a portfolio of primarily ETFs.

QED Factset Analytics Insight

QED is the first ETF of its kind: a fund that tracks an index following the collective performance of hedge funds that employ event-driven strategies. The two main substrategies described by the fund— credit opportunities and event-driven equities—focus on nonrecurring events that can drive changes in valuation in any part of a firm’s capital structure. These events can include changes in management, major product launches, mergers, spin-offs, bankruptcies and other restructuring. QED’s index doesn’t follow these strategies specifically, but uses a portfolio of ETFs and derivatives to mimic the return profiles of these hedge funds. As the Absolute Returns segment goes, QED charges a very typical expense ratio. Trade the new fund with care in early days.
