Acadian Global Managed Volatility Equities A - Managed Fund

Fund Objective
To provide returns similar to those of a global equity index, but with significantly lower absolute volatility and superior downside protection, over the longer term. Limiting absolute risk has the potential to allow investors to compound wealth more efficiently and steadily than traditional capitalisation weighted indices. The option aims to perform in line with the MSCI All Country World Index over rolling three-year periods before fees.
Fund Strategy
The option's investment strategy is based on building a diversified equity portfolio that aims to provide returns similar to those of the Global equity market but with lower absolute volatility than the Global market over the full market cycle. The option aims to exploit the 'low volatility anomaly', the historical pattern in which higher volatility stocks have underperformed lower volatility stocks on a risk adjusted basis. The initial consideration is overall portfolio risk, in addition to the Acadian alpha model. The option is unhedged.
