Seeks total return which exceeds the S&P 500 Index (the "Benchmark"). The Strategy will seek to use derivatives, or a combination of derivatives and direct investments, to earn a return that tracks closely the performance of the Shiller Barclays CAPE® U.S. Sector Total Return Index (the "Index"). The Strategy 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 US Equity sector rotation strategy via the Index. The Index aims to identify undervalued sectors based on a modified CAPE® Ratio, and then uses a momentum factor to seek to mitigate the effects of potential value traps.
The Strategy'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. Historically, the Strategy's beta has been similar to that of the U.S. equity market. This capital efficiency is one of the key components of the Fund.
