The fund is a discretionary global macro fund that seeks to identify and capitalize on fundamental trends in currencies, interest rates, credit and equity in both developed and emerging markets. The Fund primarily trades fixed income, foreign exchange, equity indices, credit indices, sovereign credit and related derivatives across all liquid markets. The fund does not trade individual equities, individual credits without significant government ownership, or physical commodities for speculative purposes. Generally, trades are diversified by geography and asset type, as well as by “risk on” versus “risk off” with the goal of capital appreciation regardless of market direction and with little or no correlation to a broad range of indices
