Client Commitment

This global allocation fund seeks to provide investors total return by dynamically allocating its assets across a portfolio of global equity and fixed income investments, which may involve the use of derivatives. The Fund is designed to actively adapt based on forward-looking views on extreme market movements, both positive and negative, with the goal of minimizing the risk of significant loss in a major downturn while participating in the growth potential of capital markets.

Why Invest in the Fund


With diversification across global assets and a philosophy concentrated on avoiding large drawdowns while participating in upwards moving markets, the Fund presents a potentially attractive anchor portfolio for an investor. We aim to provide better returns than a 70%/30% global balanced portfolio with lower volatility.


Market environments are constantly changing and no two time periods will ever deliver the same experience. We embrace this concept and as such, do not use average risk/return measures in our process, rather we focus on extremes.


We measure both extreme positive and negative movements known as expected tail gain (ETG) and expected tail loss (ETL). Portfolio construction is driven by the ratio of ETG to ETL, while targeting a desired level of portfolio risk with the goal of maximizing terminal value for investors.
