Alternatives Update (Risk Parity Funds Launch)

AQR out with a couple new risk parity funds (targeting 10% and 15% vol).  I think when the SEC gets comfortable with derivatives an ETF could easily replicate the risk parity funds for 50 bps or so…but nice to AQR launching lots of interesting funds.

We track a handful of  alternative funds (this list is a bit outdated) and below are a few graphics on funds and their performance YTD through October.  (Disclosure we own some of these.)
