FRANKFURT, Germany--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MV Index Solutions (MVIS) today launched the MVIS All World Long/Short Equity Index (Ticker: MVLSAW, MVLSAWTR). The index captures the systematic returns (“beta”) of long/short equity hedge funds that invest both regionally and globally. It analyses the regional MVIS Long/Short Equity Indices (MVLSDA, MVLSEM, MVLSGL, MVLSNA, MVLSWE) to identify the factors driving their returns. It then applies a patented methodology that constructs a low volatility portfolio of ETFs corresponding to the factors with the most positive momentum.
The new index complements the suite of MVIS Long/Short Equity indices that cover global and selected regional markets. “By investing in financial products based on our Long/Short Equity Indices, any investor can tap the returns of hedge funds,” said Thomas Kettner, Managing Director at MVIS. “Additionally, our Long/Short Equity Indices are less volatile than the equity markets they cover, making it a more predictable investment.”
The MVIS Long/Short Equity Indices are reviewed monthly. Detailed information about the MVIS All World Long/Short Equity Index including methodology details and index data is available on our website.
