Objectives and Strategy

To capture 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 after fees and taxes.
The option utilises the same alpha forecasts as Acadian's equity strategies, but the initial consideration when building the portfolio is risk. Where in most cases Acadian focuses on adding value primarily through stock forecasts in combination with the risk controls used in the process, the focus in low volatility portfolios is on capturing mispricing's where risk is uncompensated. The option invests in a diversified portfolio of equities worldwide. The option may hedge currency risk up to 100% of the option's value.
