The Sub-Fund aims to seek a consistent, absolute return while placing emphasis on the preservation of capital in the medium to long term. The investment strategy is based on risk spreading as a means of diversifying investments and makes an extensive use of options and derivatives to reduce the overall portfolio risk. The investment policy will be flexible in terms of currency, rating and sector allocation.
