Fund Description

The Adviser will seek to produce attractive risk-adjusted returns over time by replicating the investment and asset allocation strategies of institutional investors such as endowment funds. Generally, endowment funds own both income-producing assets and assets selected for long-term capital appreciation, and structure their asset allocation to achieve both income and long-term appreciation. The fund is non-diversified.
