Fund Description

In seeking long-term risk adjusted total return, the fund will balance the level of risk with the return opportunities of its investments. To access return opportunities the fund will utilize targeted long and short exposures to diverse potential sources of return across and within global equities, global bonds, commodities and currencies markets (also referred to herein as the "asset classes"). A "long" exposure will benefit the fund when the underlying asset increases in price. A "short" exposure will benefit the fund when the underlying asset decreases in price. The fund is non-diversified.
