The Fund is for you if:

  • You have an existing investment portfolio and are looking for ways to enhance returns and further diversify your overall portfolio.

  • Your view of diversification includes investing in a unique investment strategy that uses gearing / leverage and holds a directional (long / short) bias when investing in South African equities.

  • Your main objective is to create real investment growth over the long-term.

  • You are in the position to stay invested for 7+ years, allowing the fund to achieve maximum growth (although you may withdraw from the fund at any time).

  • You are comfortable with an investment risk profile that is high / aggressive.
  • You wish to generate potential positive returns even when markets are falling, capitalising on downside risk protection that hedge funds typically offer.
