The Fund follows an credit long/short investment strategy which is generally market neutral. The objective of the Fund is to achieve longterm capital growth in absolute terms with a strong focus on capital preservation. Traditional long positions are coupled with (synthetic) long and short positions, which will be achieved through the use of financial derivative instruments (amongst others credit default swaps on a single name or on a index). The Fund will mainly invest in bonds and other related debt securities (such as corporate and/or sovereign and/ or financial bonds, covered bonds and convertible bonds) and financial derivative instruments. Specifically, the Fund may conduct credit default swaps for both investment and hedging purposes.
