Investment Objectives

The fund seeks to provide shareholders with exposure to a diversified portfolio of asset classes that are directly or indirectly linked to physical assets with positive correlation to inflation and are expected to maintain their real (after inflation) value over time.

Investment Strategy

The fund uses various asset classes to provide positive correlation to inflation including: precious metals and related equities; industrial, energy and agricultural commodities and related equities; real estate investment trusts (REITs); emerging market (EM) currencies; real return bonds and treasury inflation-protected securities; and cash. The portfolio will be tactically rebalanced on a monthly basis with a risk-parity based asset allocation strategy to maximize returns while reducing risk.
