ABR 50/50 Volatility Fund
The Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation. Employing a proprietary investment model, the Fund’s adviser invests the Fund’s assets primarily in securities and derivative instruments that, to varying degrees, provide for an allocation among (i) long exposure to CBOE Volatility Index (“VIX Index”) futures and VIX Index exchange-traded products (“ETPs”); (ii) short exposure to VIX Index futures and VIX Index ETPs; (iii) long exposure to S&P 500 Index futures and S&P 500 Index ETPs; (iv) long exposure to long-term U.S. Treasury securities, and (v) cash.
50/50 Volatility Strategy
In managing the Fund, the Adviser uses a 50/50 blend of Long and Short Volatility Strategies, based on the Fund’s net assets, in order to seek to capitalize on extended downtrends in the price of VIX Index futures and VIX Index ETPs, while mitigating the effect of sudden price appreciation in VIX Index futures and VIX Index ETPs. Depending on the level of volatility in the market, the Fund, through its 50/50 approach, will emphasize different portfolio constituents in differing amounts or levels.
