Objective

This Equity Fund is actively managed aiming to outperform the return of the CS AllHedge Index Long/Short Equity benchmark. The portfolio and the performance of the Fund can deviate from the benchmark. The Fund invests mainly in equities and equity-type securities directly or via synthetic exposure. Investments in equities and equity-type securities of small and medium sized issuers domiciled in the European Region will account for a larger proportion than investments in equities and equity-type securities of other issuers. The Fund can use derivatives to achieve the above aims. The Fund uses derivatives to reduce the impact of changes in currency exchange rates on the performance.
