UBS and HFR Link Up To Launch Exchange Traded Fund
Switzerland's UBS(UBS.N)(UBSN.VX) said on Friday it had launched an investment product that will give investors access to a broad basket of hedge funds in a single, listed investment.
UBS, Europe's largest wealth manager by assets, teamed up with Chicago-based Hedge Fund Research (HFR) to build the exchange traded fund (ETF) on the U.S. company's widely-watched HFRX Global hedge Fund Index.
"This is a unique opportunity for investors to access the world-leading hedge fund benchmark in a liquid, exchange traded, UCITS compliant form," said Nicolas Samaran, Executive Director in the Fund Derivatives Structuring Group at UBS.
