The Fund will be seeking to take advantage of inefficiencies in the pricing of closed ended funds and significant movements in financial markets. These global opportunities will be unconstrained by region or sector and may be volatile in the short term. Through its investments in these collectives, the portfolio will be exposed to a range of asset classes (such as equities, bonds, property and commodities), underlying currencies, geographic spread and funds managed by a variety of fund management groups and style of investment manager.
