Proton Fixed Income

The Fairtree Proton RCIS Retail Hedge Fund was established in 2005.

The Fairtree Proton RCIS Retail Hedge Fund aims to provide superior risk-adjusted returns over and above cash, irrespective of market conditions. The portfolio is managed by balancing fixed income relative value exposures with credit exposures, in a way that minimises market risk and allows the portfolio to achieve its targeted return over the medium term. A disciplined approach to fundamental and quantitative analysis helps to identify these mispriced assets.

A team-based fundamental approach to the valuation of assets, combined with cutting-edge quantitative techniques in portfolio construction and risk management help build a fund to achieve the objectives of superior risk -adjusted returns. The fund has a targeted return of cash plus 6% p.a. over a rolling 3-year period.

“The most important rule of trading is to play great defence, not great offence. Every day I assume every position I have is wrong"

Paul Tudor Jones


Investors should take cognisance of the fact that there are risks involved in buying or selling any financial product and that past performance of a financial product is not necessarily indicative of its future performance. The value of financial products can increase as well as decrease over time, depending on the value of the underlying securities and market conditions. 

Hedge funds are portfolios of collective investment schemes and are regulated under the Collective Investment Schemes Control Act, 45 of 2002. Investments in portfolios of collective investment schemes are generally medium to long term investments. Collective investments are traded at ruling prices and may engage in scrip lending and borrowing. The manager of a collective investment scheme may close a portfolio to new investors in order to manage the portfolio more efficiently in terms of its mandate.
