Fulcrum is a macro driven investor focused on the global economy and the business cycle. We seek to achieve a high degree of diversification by investing in multiple asset classes on a global basis. Our investment process is driven by the Fulcrum Investment Team and their process is dominated by top-down analysis.

Our core beliefs relating to multi-asset investing are a dual focus on diversification and risk management. We offer funds across discretionary, systematic and alternative strategies and the asset classes and investment strategy will vary between these. We believe as a firm that considering E, S and G risks can contribute to improved risk-adjusted return and integrate this in the investment processes where relevant. 

Fulcrum has given careful consideration to how responsible investment impacts its involvement in and responsibility to the financial markets. Where we hold direct equities, we attempt to map the holding's impact and where we are invested in the derivatives market we consider how these investments might affect the underlying market. 

01.5. Provide a brief description of the key elements, any variations or exceptions to your investment policy that covers your responsible investment approach. [Optional]

In our Liquid Alternatives fund we invest in a range of different direct equities through custom baskets and here ESG risks forms an integral part of the company research. In addition, we consider a stock's involvement in any controversies as well as their real impact. Together these factors form a 'sustainability score' which also assists with marginal decision making. 

01.6. Additional information [Optional].
