The Momentum Optimal Yield Fund is a conservatively managed market-neutral equity portfolio and the investment policy followed by the manager will focus on outperforming the portfolio's benchmark with low volatility and little correlation to the movements of the underlying market. The fund offers the potential for measured additional yield in excess of cash with low volatility of returns.
