Since the launch of the UCITS fund in October 2015, returns have annualised at 5.1% with a volatility of 7.8%. These returns have delivered with relatively high equity correlation (0.7 to S&P 500) and relatively high equity beta (0.7 to S&P 500). These figures are consistent with the net exposure of the fund which has been running towards the top end of the 40% - 60% range (the current net is 59.6%), while the current gross exposure of 112% is towards the bottom end of the range. Prior to launching the UCITS, Singh has managed the strategy at JP Morgan since mid-2013, generating a high teens annualised return (gross of fees) between Jun 13 and Nov 15.
