Hedgers Love to Short ETFs. And How!

News summary by MFWire's editors

For all the talk of ETFs' growing popularity with retail investors and advisors, institutional investors put oodles of money in ETFs, too. In the case of hedge funds, it turns out that the vast majority of that money is short.

Saul Griffith of ValueWalk reports on data from Goldman Sachs, data that shows that of the $138 billion hedge funds hold in ETFs, 75 percent (i.e. $103 billion) is in short positions.

ETF Trends also reported on the data.

Both articles even offer a chart of 25 ETFs and hedge funds' current long, short and net holdings of each, as well as changes in the number of hedge funds invested in each.
