New investible replicator index TrueBeta aims to bring cross section of hedge fund strategy beta to all investors

Wednesday, September 16, 2009

From Kirsten Bischoff, Opalesque New York:

Rabbe Ekholm, CEO of Connecticut-based firm TrueBeta has launched a new hedge fund replication index which will be available to all investors.

“Following the market and fund management upheaval of 2008, investors are increasing their hedge fund allocations,” Ekholm said. “However, they now also demand liquidity and transparency, and increasingly want to separate the alpha and beta in their hedge fund portfolios.”

Ekholm, previously Chief Commercial Officer and Management Board Member at Saxo Bank and former head of the Content Solutions Group at MSCI Barra spoke to reporters about TrueBeta’s approach to hedge fund replication on Tuesday.

The True Beta hedge fund replicator will target the high beta component that is found in hedge fund returns. The vehicle seeks to replicate five underlying hedge fund strategies: equity, event driven, macro, relative value arbitrage, emerging markets. These strategies are replicated individually and then built into an equally weighted composite.

Hedge fund investors are much more aware of alpha and beta within their own portfolios and are beginning to look at ways to control how they allocate to each. True Beta’s replicator, which is available to a wider scope of investors than hedge fund vehicles are seeks to be an access point into industry generated beta, charging only a management fee of 1.65%.
