Quarterly Commentary - Q1 2015


Our currency momentum strategy contributed the most to quarterly performance amid a sustained rally in the U.S. dollar.

The European Central Bank’s monetary stimulus helped make the Fund’s rates momentum strategy a contributor. But, the Fund’s equity value strategy was a detractor.

The financial markets are experiencing elevated volatility. Our approach is to evenly distribute risk across the Fund's risk premia strategies.
