The Fund’s investment objective is to seek total return (capital appreciation and current income) which exceeds the total return of its benchmark index over a full market cycle. The Fund’s current benchmark index is the Credit Suisse Managed Futures Liquid Total Return USD Index.
The Fund will seek to use derivatives, or a combination of derivatives and direct investments, to earn a return that closely tracks the performance of the BNP Paribas Multi-Asset Trend Index (the "Index"). The Fund will invest in a portfolio of debt securities to seek to provide additional long-term total return.
Maintain a core portfolio of debt instruments that focuses on global fixed income sector rotation while simultaneously obtaining exposure to a diverse multi-asset-class trend-following strategy via the Index. The Index seeks investment exposure to trends in price movements of a broad universe of assets across different markets, including global equities, sovereign bonds and other debt securities, interest rates, currencies and commodities.
The Fund's goal is to outperform the Benchmark by obtaining 100% notional exposure to the Index and 100% exposure to the underlying fixed income collateral portfolio. This capital efficiency is one of the key components of the Fund.
