We understand that investing can be a risky business, hence we have put together a hedge fund solution to lower your portfolio’s exposure to risk independent of market cycles.

A hedge fund is an alternative investment that uses different strategies to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns. The benefit of a hedge fund investment is that it behaves differently to traditional investments. As an illustration, hedge funds may deliver positive returns when markets are down. Hedge fund managers are able to achieve this due to the wider ‘tool set’ they have at their disposal (e.g. leverage, short-selling), therefore the realised return of a hedge fund is more dependent on the skill of the hedge fund manager than on the general direction of the market.
