The Alpha Alternatives Fund is designed for investors seeking strong long-term returns by investing in underlying strategies that provide exposure to a well-diversified portfolio of specialist Alternative investment managers. The Alpha Alternatives Fund will invest in equity long short, relative value, event driven, global macro and managed futures. The Alpha Alternatives Fund will actively seek to take advantage of strategic country and asset allocation, as well as security pricing opportunities, by investing in a diverse range of securities across the globe. The composition and performance of the Fund may differ significantly from its benchmark. The fund aims to outperform the Cash +1% (Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index + 1.0%) after fund fees and expenses, and before taxes over rolling 3 to 5 year periods.


The Alpha Alternatives Fund gains exposure to alternatives by investing in a diversified mix of Alternative based investment strategies that typically have low or even negative correlation to each other.
