Simplify Asset Management introduces the Simplify Multi-QIS Alternative ETF (QIS), a first-of-its-kind fund that provides investors and advisors with access to best-in-class quant-driven strategies. In an environment marked by elevated volatility and diverse risks across asset classes, QIS aims to deliver positive absolute returns and income by investing in a diversified portfolio of third-party quantitative investment strategies spanning equities, interest rates, commodities, and currencies.
The QIS approach begins with Simplify evaluating thousands of quantitative strategies managed by leading investment banks, carefully selecting a few hundred with compelling risk-adjusted return characteristics. Simplify then collaborates with each strategy provider, conducting thorough quantitative and qualitative reviews to narrow down the selection to an optimized collection of 10-20 strategies. The chosen strategies aim to achieve positive returns while mitigating risks associated with asset classes and individual strategies.
