Fund Objective
To provide absolute returns in excess of the RBA cash rate before fees and taxes over rolling three-year periods. This will be achieved by investing in fundamentally attractive, lower risk global stocks and short selling fundamentally unattractive, higher risk stocks while carefully controlling portfolio risk and transaction costs. Sophisticated portfolio construction techniques will be used to implement this to limit net equity market exposure.
Fund Strategy
The fund uses Acadian's systematic fundamental analysis of stocks across a universe of global developed market equities and also seeks to exploit individual security risk mispricing. The fund will generally maintain a gross long exposure of 150% and a gross short equity exposure of 100%, resulting in it generally holding lower risk, fundamentally attractive companies and short (selling) higher risk, fundamentally unattractive companies. The fund targets being neutral to equity market movements and aims to hedge currency risk.
