Fund Description

The adviser uses two principal strategies: Global Macro Managed Futures Strategy and Absolute Return Strategy. The Managed Futures Strategy seeks to provide returns non-correlated with traditional portfolios through allocation (through one or more Underlying Pools) to exchange traded and U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission approved financial instruments. The Absolute Return Strategy utilizes strategies and investment techniques aimed to produce risk-adjusted returns and absolute returns over a full market cycle while managing risk exposure. The fund is non-diversified.
