Alpha-Beta Separation

Suppose a mgr attains alpha beta separation by: 1. Investing in a large cap index (beta) AND 2. Long-short strategy in a small cap index (alpha) Now, if there is a ban on long-short strategy, how else can a manager attain alpha-beta separation in these markets? - BN

fund of funds that use alpha/beta strategy?

Ohhhh aaa Alpha Beta ohhhh aaaaaa

They can still go long/short derivatives can’t they? or is that part of the ban?

i assume a ban on shorting…

you can buy an ETF that implements short strategy like ‘DOG’ or ‘QID’, that won’t be a perfect match to bring beta to 0 of the index your are trying to exploit for alpha though
