The fund has the ability to benefit from movements in the prices of equities- either up or down. Specifically, the fund takes long and short positions in equities of technology, media and telecom companies anywhere in the world. Although the fund actually places most of its assets in high quality debt securities, most of its performance is derived from its exposure to equities. The Investment Manager uses its own analysis to determine which equities appear most likely to rise in value and which appear most likely to fall. The Investment Manager then takes long positions on the former and short positions (using derivatives) on the latter.
