Absolute Insight Dynamic Opportunities Fund
Our Absolute Insight Dynamic Opportunities Fund aims to generate attractive, positive, absolute returns in all market conditions by focusing on the less directional and total return elements of the Insight broad opportunities strategy.
Please note this strategy is not currently available as a standalone investment.
Global, macro-oriented portfolio: takes long and short positions across a range of asset classes, including fixed income, equities and currencies. It uses a range of absolute return investment approaches, designed to capture sources of return characterised by their low correlation with mainstream investment markets.
Less directional sources of return: though the Fund has the flexibility to take exposure to market directionality, this is typically achieved through investments which offer an asymmetric pay off profile (limited downside, potentially large upside). There are three main areas that the Fund will seek to achieve its return target:
- Stability of return: accessing long-term drivers of economic value with much lower volatility than traditional asset classes; examples include dividends, real estate, infrastructure
- Relative value: identifying divergent drivers for long-short opportunities implemented through equity, fixed income, currency and volatility
- Derivative strategies: typically non-linear strategies implemented through options, swaps and volatility. Exploiting opportunities in implied versus realised volatility, time value and trending versus mean-reverting markets

Annual investment update
Overall 2017 was a good year for risk assets but a poor year for the US dollar, contrary to market expectations at the start of the year, when interest rate differentials were expected to be a driver of dollar strength. Credit clearly outperformed government bonds and government bonds traded sideways, with a little volatility at times.

Report and accounts
Data as at 31 December 2017. Assets under management (AUM) are represented by the value of cash securities and other economic exposure managed for clients.
The value of investments and any income from them will fluctuate and is not guaranteed (this may partly be due to exchange rate fluctuations). Investors may not get back the amount invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance.
Derivatives may be used to generate returns as well as to reduce costs and/or the overall risk of the portfolio. Using derivatives can involve a higher level of risk. A small movement in the price of an underlying investment may result in a disproportionately large movement in the price of the derivative investment..
The investment manager may invest in instruments which can be difficult to sell when markets are stressed.
Property assets are inherently less liquid and more difficult to sell than other assets. The valuation of physical property is a matter of the valuer's judgement rather than fact.
