The fund invests globally across a range of assets with the aim of delivering a higher total return, with lower volatility on average, than global equities over a rolling three- to five-year period. There is no guarantee that the fund will achieve a positive return over this, or any other, period. Exposure is gained predominantly through derivatives to enable the fund to go long or short of any investable asset class and rapidly take advantage of changing market conditions. The approach combines in-depth research to determine the medium- to long-term value of assets, with analysis of investors emotional reaction to events.
