UBS Hedge Funds are innovative products that offer the optimum combination of the most promising hedge funds worldwide, covering a variety of investment styles and strategies. In this way, these funds of hedge funds target a positive absolute return over the long term whilst maintaining a low correlation to traditional asset classes and keeping volatility moderate. Thanks to a mix of different strategies and fund managers, this fund-of-funds structure allows for higher risk diversification than is possible with an investment in an individual hedge fund.
The Fund seeks to invest in a diverse set of liquid alternative investment strategies (i.e. asset classes other than stocks, bonds, and cash).
The strategy is implemented via daily liquid systematic strategies (“QIS”) that typically apply a rules-based approach to investing across a variety of asset classes (e.g. equities, fixed income, currencies, and commodities) and styles (e.g. momentum, carry, value).
Access to alternative return streams in a daily liquid format
Diversification and risk reduction potential when included in a traditional long-only portfolio with potential for enhanced returns
Provide exposure to systematic strategies not typically available in daily liquid funds in a low cost, transparent format, providing diversification through access to a broader set of strategies and increased ability for tactical portfolio adjustments.
All securities investments present a risk of loss of capital. The Fund will use structured financial instruments and derivatives, including swaps, which are inherently volatile and could potentially lead to additional risk should the market move in the opposite direction to the strategy. Please refer to the Fund's Offering document for a comprehensive discussion of risks.
