The investment objective is to generate consistent returns over the medium term with low correlation to major stock and fixed-income market indices. Such returns are expected to be associated with a low degree of risk. The Gottex Market Neutral Plus Fund invests in Underlying Funds that primarily pursue market neutral implementations of strategies that fall within relative value, event-driven and hedged equities styles. The Investment Manager intends to invest the Master Fund's assets in Underlying Funds that are independently market neutral in that they seek to substantially hedge out direct exposure to major equity and bond market movements. Investments of the Master Fund collectively will have a global focus. Initially, it is intended that the Master Fund will invest in at least forty (40)
Underlying Funds although this number may vary over time. AUM combines all share classes and is reported in USD.
