AdvisorShares Launches QAM Equity Hedge

August 13, 2012 James Heinsman Company Spotlight

ETFs sponsor AdvisorShares has launched its new QAM Equity Hedge ETF.

The fund opened for trading last Wednesday, with an actively managed long/short strategy. The goal is to surpass the industry’s current risk-adjusted performance in order to slowly offer investors better risk-adjusted returns in the face of the S&P 500 Index. At the same time, QAM Equity Hedge Fund hopes to minimize the time and expertise required in the selection of individual hedge fund.

QAM Equity Hedge Fund is sub-advised by $700 million Commerce Holdings subsidiary Commerce Asset Management.

AdvisorShares CEO Noah Hamman said:

“We’re excited about our partnership with CAM and bringing QEH to the market. In utilizing CAM’s extensive network and knowledge within the hedge fund universe, we feel QEH offers a core alternative solution that investors could use to further diversify their portfolio, which a 20-30% allocation to core alternatives can help bring true diversification to investors’ asset allocation.”
