MVIS Announces February 2017 Performance of MVIS Long/Short Equity Indices

FRANKFURT, Germany--()--MV Index Solutions (MVIS) today announced the February performance of its six investable Long/Short Equity Indices. Each index is constructed using transparent, liquid ETFs and US Treasury securities to produce hedge fund-style returns without hedge fund pricing, opaqueness and redemption restrictions.

With a history stretching back to 2003, the MVIS Long/Short Equity Indices use a patented methodology in seeking to capture the beta returns of universes of statistically similar hedge funds that exhibit in aggregate consistently high concentrations of beta. MVIS currently offers four regional and two global long/short equity strategies.
