Simplify Multi-QIS Alternative ETF
Top 10 Holdings
What is QIS?
The Fund is an actively managed ETF that seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing in multiple quantitative investment strategies across equity, fixed income, commodity, currency, and volatility markets. The Fund invests primarily through total return swaps that provide the returns of third-party quantitative investment strategies that provide model portfolios accessed by the Fund. Quantitative investment strategies (or "QIS") are third-party investment strategies that analyse historical quantitative data and use models to identify investments that based on historical results can provide attractive risk adjusted returns. The adviser evaluates multiple strategies and selects the individual strategies based on multiple qualitative and quantitative considerations, including portfolio diversification, scalability, expected risk adjusted returns and correlation to one another. By using a multi-strategy approach, the Fund's adviser seeks to identify the optimal allocation among 10-20 strategies to achieve positive returns and mitigate asset-class and single-strategy risks. The adviser evaluates strategies on an ongoing basis and makes adjustments to the strategy allocations when the adviser believes an alternative strategy would provide better returns.

What is ETF correlation?
Correlation is a measure of the strength of the relationship between two ETFs. It quantifies the degree to which prices of the two ETFs typically move together.
Here, correlation is measured over the past year with the Pearson correlation coefficient (Pearon’s r), which ranges from -1 to 1.
Using ETF correlations in portfolio and strategy construction
ETF correlations can help you create investing strategies and portfolios. Use them to:
- •Build a diversified portfolio from uncorrelated or inversely correlated ETFs with the aim of minimizing portfolio risk.
- •Compare correlated or related ETFs to find one with a lower expense ratio or higher trading volume.
- •Create an investing strategy that hedges an ETF with an uncorrelated or inversely correlated ETF.
