Absolute Return Strategy

Fund Investment Objectives

The Multi-Manager Absolute Return Strategy is a hedge fund of funds program built on the premise of combining both convergent and divergent strategies in a diversified portfolio that has low correlation to the public markets and the ability to perform well in any economic environment. Convergent strategies tend to perform best during periods of relative calm in which the market processes all available information in an effort to determine assets that are over-valued and under-valued. Conversely, during periods of rising volatility and uncertainty, divergent strategies take advantage of serial price movement in a marketplace which temporarily ignores fundamental information.
