Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2015


Three of the Fund’s equity strategies contributed to performance during the quarter. The equity emerging strategy was the largest contributor.

Commodity and currency strategies detracted from returns amid continued uncertainty around the timing of the Fed’s rate liftoff. The largest detractor was the currency momentum strategy.

In light of increased market volatility, our models have decreased our exposure to risk premia strategies most affected by increased volatility.
