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 Dow Jones U.S. Select REIT Total Return Index (the “Dow Jones U.S. REIT Index”).
The Fund will seek to use derivatives, or a combination of derivatives and direct investments, to earn a return that tracks closely the performance of the DigitalBridge Fundmental US Real Estate 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 U.S. REITS through the DigialBridge Fundamental US Real Estate Index. The Index aims to deliver better risk-adjusted returns relative to other REIT indices.
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.
