Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2016


The Fund outperformed both its primary and secondary benchmarks.

The Fund’s fixed income strategies were the leading contributors to returns. The currency strategies detracted.

The portfolio’s construction seems relatively more stable the past few months, with most position re-sizing being a function of volatility management at the strategy level, as opposed to risk weight shifting between strategies.
