Hedged Equity

Our hedged equity approaches seek to provide distinctive performance profiles by drawing on our longstanding experience in single sectors and regions such as health care, and specific regions such as Europe and the US.

Investment in the funds shown places an investor’s capital at risk. Alternative investments tend to be speculative and use leverage, which can magnify potential losses. Additionally, they can be subject to increased illiquidity, volatility and counterparty risks, among other risks.
