Sanlam FOUR’s Multi–Strategy fund triumphed at last night’s EuroHedge Absolute UCITS Awards 2018. The fund won in the Macro & Multi-Asset 1 Year and 3 Years categories.
The awards recognise excellence in risk-adjusted and absolute return performance by alternative UCITS hedge funds. The judging is based on a quantitative process, aiming to reflect the two primary aims of hedge funds – managing volatility and delivering positive returns for investors.
The Sanlam FOUR Multi-Strategy Fund, led by Mike Pinggera, aims to participate in rising markets and defend capital in falling markets. This is achieved through investing in a diversified range of assets, from stock indices and government bonds to real assets, equity derivatives and corporate bonds. The fund is a global absolute return proposition and as a UCITS IV vehicle, it can also be described as a liquid, diversified alternatives fund. The fund aims to deliver positive returns over three years and returns of CPI plus 4% over an investment cycle.
Earlier this year, the Multi-Strategy also fund won in the Absolute Return-Multi Asset category at the Investment Week Fund Manager of the Year awards.
Alfio Tagliabue, CEO of Sanlam FOUR, said: “In the current volatile investment environment, the ability of our multi-strategy team to adapt and deliver strong performance for our clients is something we are hugely proud of. This award is further recognition of our strong investment credentials and client-first thinking.”
