AQR Capital Management Attracts Big Investors with Beta focused DELTA Hedge Fund

Just as the hedge fund industry appeared to be finding its alpha again after several years of underperformance, a new strategy is emerging seeking “beta” returns. As reported by Pensions and Investments, Clifford Asness’ AQR Capital Management has created a rules-based hedge fund and it is selling out quickly.

AQR Capital's DELTA hedge fund, launched earlier this year, is attracting many high profile institutional investors such as the $182 billion Canada Pension Plan Investment Board. AQR’s DELTA fund is already near its capacity of $7 billion. With an increasing number of institutional investors exploring hedge fund beta strategies to work alongside alpha-producing hedge funds in their portfolio, AQR Capital Management’s beta strategy hedge fund provides a ready-made alternative.
