Hedger Invests Nearly $10B in Three ETFs

News summary by MFWire's editors

The border between hedger country and '40 Act territory keeps getting smaller.

For a few years now, a steady stream of hedgers have been crossing the border by launching mutual funds and ETFs that mimic the strategies in their hedge funds and separate accounts.

Now, hedgers are making hefty investments in ETFs to get low-fuss exposure to tricky asset categories.

Take for instance, some recent moves made by the world's largest hedge fund, the $140 billion Bridgewater Associates, as reported by Motley Fool.

The firm has made big allocations to three ETFs: $3 billion in the iShares MSCI Emerging Markets Index ETF (EEM); $3.3 billion in the SPDR S&P 500 Trust ETF (SPY) and $3.6 billion in the Vanguard MSCI Emerging Markets ETF (VWO).
