In this episode of Strategic Investor Radio, host Charley Wright interviews Kurt Voldeng of Commerce Asset Management. Mr. Voldeng is both the COO and the CIO of the Memphis-based firm, which specializes in hedge-fund replication strategies. The company replicates hedge-fund strategies without actually owning hedge funds or even their underlying assets. Instead, Commerce categorizes each of the 800+ hedge funds in the HFR Index into one of 26 groups, and then determines the publically traded ETFs that best correlate to the performance of each of those groups. From there, a portfolio of ETFs is built to emulate the weighted performance of all 26 groups, with holdings rebalanced every month.
