“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.
