The Olympia Dynamic Fund will invest half of its assets like a of fund of funds, picking between five and 10 managers to manage accounts for it. But the other half of its assets will be placed with a hedge fund tracker, making it much more liquid than a normal fund of funds.

It will also be able to short the hedge fund index, as well as going long, depending on market conditions.
