Regarding risk diversification and inflation hedging properties, the enhanced indices are as effective tools for strategic asset allocation as the traditional ones. In addition, with alphas ranging from 0.49% to 6.18% a year, the enhanced indices improve upon the performance of their traditional counterparts, both statistically and economically, suggesting that they can also be utilized for tactical asset allocation. Among those considered, the leading enhanced index targets maturities far away from the present.
