Objective

The investment objective of the Fund is to provide absolute rates of return and reduced volatility of returns over the medium to long term. The investment strategy of the Investment Manager is based on its proprietary trading programme ("Global Diversified") which currently has two elements: an actively managed portfolio of a broad spectrum of futures contracts, traded on recognised exchanges, in order to gain exposure to underlying assets, (the managed futures strategy) and an actively managed portfolio of equities hedged with stock index futures contracts, each traded on recognised exchanges (the equity market neutral strategy).
