Why Model Portfolio Managers May Embrace Replication of Hedge Funds
Model portfolios are built on the premise that asset allocation drives long term portfolio returns. Alternative strategies like hedge funds can provide diversification benefits that may improve long-term returns and reduce drawdowns.

ETFs have other benefits as well: transparency, flexibility to efficiently increase and decrease target allocations, reduced manager oversight, and reporting simplicity.
