    Portfolio diversification

     Traditional asset class portfolio construction may give a false sense of diversification due to the correlations between asset
     classes. By viewing the exposure through a factor lens, a more robust diversification can be targeted by constructing the
     portfolio using risk premia. The below example illustrates how a multi-strategy portfolio which may look diversified at an
     asset class level, in fact has around 50% exposure to equity premia which may imply under-diversification.

becomes less of a niche approach, the level of transparency has
increased and a full daily look through to the underlying holdings

for the growth in popularity of risk premia is the increased overall
understanding of the asset class by investors in terms of what can
be achieved and how they can be integrated into their portfolios.

themselves to trading on a risk on/off basis such as liquidity or
emerging market bias premia (for example long the MSCI EM
index/Short S&P 500) and if an investor has an opinion on the
market direction or regime for these, they can implement their

Risk considerations
The hedge fund strategies are not capital protected nor are they capital guaranteed. Investors in the hedge fund strategies should be prepared and able
to sustain losses of the capital invested, up to a total loss. The value of an investment may go down as well as up and past performance is not a reliable
indicator of future performance. Hedge fund strategies are complex and may not be suitable for all investors and no assurance can be given that the
investment objective will be achieved. Investments in hedge fund strategies are speculative and involve a high degree of risk. Investors should be aware
of the attendant risks including, but not limited to the potential for higher fees and lack of strategy transparency. Hedge fund strategies may employ
a single strategy, which may result in a lack of diversification, and consequently higher risk. Hedge fund strategies may also use leverage, which may
increase profits, but may also magnify losses. The hedge fund strategies are intended for professional investors who, based on their own investment
expertise or that of their financial advisor, understand its strategy, characteristics and risks. Past performance is no guarantee of future results; nothing
contained herein shall constitute any representation or warranty as to future performance. Further information is available upon investor’s request.
