A distinctive non-correlated approach to hedged equity
- A hedged equity fund, not a market-neutral fund
- Absolute return objective
- Value Oriented long holdings
- Active, options-based risk management; no single-stock shorting
- Cash as a tactical allocation
What makes us unique?
"The IP Fund has generated solid risk-adjusted returns with very low correlation to the equity indices. We offer a distinctive value proposition and meaningful risk diversification by blending long volatility hedging positions with the inherently short volatility characteristics of our equity portfolio."
Philip Smith, Portfolio Manager
