The Fund seeks to generate absolute return, over a 3 year rolling period, independent of market conditions, by investing on a global basis. The Fund invests in a global portfolio of equities, equity related securities (including derivatives), cash, near cash, fixed interest securities, currency exchange transactions, index linked securities, money market instruments (MMIs) and deposits. At times the portfolio may be concentrated in any one or a combination of such assets and, as well as holding physical long positions the Manager may create synthetic long and short positions through derivatives.
