IndexIQ is a pioneer and leading asset management firm providing index-based, liquid alternative investments focused on absolute return, real assets and international strategies. IndexIQ solutions are offered as Exchange-Traded Funds (ETFs), Mutual Funds, Separate Accounts and ETF Model Portfolios. IndexIQ’s philosophy is to democratize investment management by making innovative alternative investment strategies available to investors in low cost, liquid and transparent products.* IndexIQ strategies are marketed through the company’s proprietary investment products and select partnerships with leading global financial institutions.

Founded upon cutting-edge academic research, our mission is to take indexing to the next level by combining the best attributes of both passive and active investing to provide all investors with cost-effective access to the types of sophisticated investment products that typically have been reserved for institutional and ultra high-net-worth investors. We believe that index investing is a superior way to invest, but that traditional index-based strategies fail to meet the needs of investors in today’s increasingly sophisticated markets.

Investors benefit from our expertise in alternative investments and ETFs, as well as from IndexIQ’s product development capabilities and thought-leadership. The result is a suite of low-cost alternative investment strategies for all investors — it’s what we call “the alternative to alternatives.”
