Objective

The fund seeks to achieve positive absolute returns, irrespective of the present market environment and at considerably lower volatility than equity markets. The fund invests (long and short) in liquid equities and equity-related securities of European companies. For the purpose of maintaining liquidity, the fund also holds a portfolio of short-term fixed-income investments. The fund is suitable for investors with a long-term horizon and medium to high risk tolerance who want to diversify their portfolio with an absolute-return strategy offering a low correlation with other asset classes.
