The Stafford SICAV Global Equity Fund is an un-leveraged, globally diversified, equity fund-of-hedge funds. Assets are allocated among long/short equity hedge funds managed according to the UCITS IV directive. The selection of hedge fund managers who demonstrated excellence in stock-picking is an important contributor to the Fund's success. Equally important is the hedge fund managers' ability to hedge their portfolios and thereby provide consistent downside protection. The Fund was launched on April 1 st, 1993 as a British Virgin Islands (BVI) domiciled fund and was migrated on April 2nd, 2013 onto a Luxembourg-based UCITS IV platform. The Fund continues to be managed according to the same strategy and principles as for the last 20 years.
