Search Requirements

DeadlineFriday 8th January 2021
Asset ClassAlternatives
Performance TargetWe are seeking a left tail/vol strategy (can be long/short) that definitively protects in equity market sell offs but does not have excessive bleed when volatility remains low.
StructurePooled Fund
Size of potential mandateApproximately £8+m if we can find a suitable strategy. Could be potentially as high as £15m depending on its fit.
Track RecordWill consider GIPS compliant track record longer than 3 years if not available in the UCITs fund

Other Requirements
We are looking for strategies that will provide positive absolute returns when equity markets experience sizeable sell offs. A pure long vol strategy may not be suitable as negative carry in low vol environments tend to be too large. Vol strategies that have the ability to curtail excessive negative carry or long-short vol strategies might be highly relevant. CTAs/Macros may be defensive and may provide positive absolute returns in negative equity markets, but they are not definitively so. These would not be suitable.3.4 million
