The Altegris Macro Strategy Fund employs two principal strategies—global macro and fixed income—and relies on investment adviser asset allocation and investment skill to allocate among global macro strategies that predominantly use fundamental macroeconomic data in a discretionary or systematic investment style with a bias toward foreign exchange.
As of September 30, 2012 it had AUM of $393.6 million.
