Overview of Strategy

A Multi-Strategy approach seeks strong risk-adjusted returns across market cycles using a range of alternative strategies such as long/short equity, fixed income and event-driven. Depending on the opportunities in the market, this strategy attempts to shift exposure between these alternative strategies to reduce risk. The goal of a multi-strategy approach is to deliver consistently positive returns regardless of the movement in equity and bond markets.

  • Low correlation – a multi-strategy approach generally has low correlation to equity and fixed income markets.
  • A flexible approach – invests in a variety of investment strategies managed by expert managers in each strategy.
