Published

on

Switching gears from the glory days of managing the Global Alpha hedge fund, Goldman Sachs Asset Management (GSAM) wants a piece of the US$ 2 trillion U.S. exchange-traded fund (ETF) industry. The ETF market continues to grow in weight and popularity.

In December, Goldman Sachs filed papers and revealed plans for 11 exchange-traded funds that embrace smart beta and hedge fund replication. Goldman Sachs’ version of smart beta has been trademarked “ActiveBeta” and a name of one of the hedge fund replication ETFs is called Goldman Sachs Equity Long Short Hedge Fund Tracker ETF.
