Investment Strategy

We believe that superior returns are generated by investing with a long-term perspective and focusing on capital preservation. 

The 5 Oceans Fund is designed to have a diversified asset and geographic exposure.  The exposure to growth assets can be varied between 30% and 70% of the Fund depending on the underlying managers’ assessment of market risk. This is quite different from traditional diversified funds which often target a set growth allocation and invest accordingly.

The 5 Oceans Fund achieves this by carefully selecting managers that have flexible investment mandates and/or employ risk mitigation strategies. This gives the 5 Oceans Fund a dynamic and flexible exposure to growth assets and greater focus on capital protection in the event of market crashes.

The 5 Oceans Fund does not have a strict target asset allocation rather employs broad ranges for the different asset classes, as detailed in the Statement of Investment Policy and Objective (see Documents).

Currency hedging can be employed to reduce, or eliminate, the effect of currency movements on some or all of the 5 Oceans Fund’s overseas currency exposures.
