Risks

The fund delivers the return of a broadly diversified hedge fund index and may therefore be subject to high fluctuations in value. For this reason, an investment horizon of at least five years and corresponding risk tolerance and capacity are required. The returns payable on the fund are dependant on payments received by the fund from the swap counterparty under the terms of the relevant swap and, therefore, are subject to the credit risk of the swap counterparty. In the event that the swap counterparty defaults under the terms of the relevant swap, the fund may suffer a loss. Every fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. The fund’s assets are passively managed. As a result, the net asset value of the fund’s assets is materially dependent on the performance of the underlying investments. Losses that could be avoided via active management will not be offset.
