The fund will invest in a 15 to 25 underlying hedge fund managers, with exposure to event-driven, long/short equity, managed futures, global macro distressed, volatility and emerging markets strategies. 

Some 70% of its portfolio is weighted toward hedge funds, followed by equities (19%) and cash (8.4%). The firm is limiting its p.e. and real estate exposure to no more than 15% and commodities at 10%.

The US$65 million fund finished its first month of trading up an estimated 0.68%. Its hedge funds sub-portfolio was the strongest contributor to its performance in May, providing almost two-thirds of its gains, according to the firm.

“Within this sub-portfolio, multi-strategy and event-driven managers were the strongest performers as liquidity returned to markets and credit spreads tightened. Special situation equities were also very profitable in May. Global macro and managed futures funds were also strong performers as they benefited from the continuing surge in oil prices.”

The Global Diversified fund charges a management fees of 1% for Class A shares and a performance fee of 10%. Its minimum investment requirement is $3 million.
