Fund Investment Objectives

The SSARIS Multi-Strategy Program ("MSP") is an absolute return strategy designed to outperform the risk-free rate, regardless of the economic environment. MSP is built upon the firm's investment philosophy of going beyond simple asset and sub-strategy diversification by dividing the hedge fund universe into two primary categories - Convergent and Divergent Strategies[1] - Convergent strategies tend to perform best when markets are calm, while Divergent strategies tend to perform best during periods of rising volatility. Since the inception of MSP in 1986, the Program has empirically demonstrated the consistency and robustness of a balanced Convergent/Divergent approach in building an absolute return portfolio.
