In an ideal investment world, investors would like maximum returns and minimum volatility from their portfolio. With traditional long equity and bond investment strategies however, fund managers are not able to eliminate systemic risks inherent in these markets through normal diversification. Investors of these funds would attest to that fact in 2008 when equities, bonds and commodities fell in tandem.

What we like is for our investors to have access to products which can provide positive returns both in up and down markets. With that in mind, we have combed the investment universe and have made available sophisticated funds that employ cutting-edge investment strategies or invest into exotic asset classes that have no correlation with the general market.

These funds only cater to accredited investors and are not available on a retail level.

130/30 Strategy
Funds that have the 130/30 strategy in their mandate can go 30% short on counters that they are bearish on and leverage on the proceeds from the short position to increase 30% exposure to the strong counters. As such, on every $100 capital put up by investors, the fund managers actually get $160 of investible monies, thereby amplifying potential returns.

Quantitative Funds
If computers can beat world champion chess players, shouldn't they also perform better in the stock market? This is the basis for having computer systems use quantitative analyses to make trading decisions for the portfolio. Computers are faster and have the ability to analyse large chunks of information effectively and certainly would not have their judgment clouded by emotions. Investing into such funds will enable clients to tap on the expertise of trading systems.

Hedge Funds
A fund that lost 10% in 2008 would be considered an excellent performer given how the general equity market tanked in excess of 30%. A handful of hedge funds managed to deliver decent returns for their investors over time. Their "secret" in defying downward market forces is by employing non-traditional strategies such as statistical arbitrage, event driven and managed futures etc., which can reap returns irrespective of the market direction. It is important to note however that these strategies do not work all the time, which is why a fund of hedge funds comes in useful in the active management of monies in and out of different strategies. Through these funds, you can also gain access to world-renowned hedge funds like Paulson & Co.

Non-traditional asset classes
Wine affectionado are known to pay upwards of US$10,000 on a bottle of Domaine de la Romanée-Conti from a good vintage. How do you like the prospects of getting your hands on one at a fraction of its retail price? Through our non-traditional asset class range, not only can you invest in wine from world-renowned vineyards, you can also profit from investment in agricultural land, insurance policies or even volatility. The possibilities in the realm of non-traditional investing are endless.
