We have a dedicated pooled fund - the Nicola Alternative Strategies Fund:
Nicola Alternative Strategies Fund's primary objective is to generate long-term capital growth by investing in a multi-strategy approach that often differs from traditional asset class investing. The Fund aims to provide unit-holders high risk-adjusted returns with a low correlation to other asset classes.
The fund stresses the importance of diversification, not just across asset classes, but also across hedge fund strategies. Underlying investments are selected based on the manager’s long-term view of the market and how each of the assets complements each other, while cognizant of exposure to certain investment strategies and styles. Investments chosen will display risk and return characteristics not typically seen in traditional asset classes and traditional asset management approaches. The fund may use derivatives for hedging and non-hedging purposes.
