Ayaltis launches the Areca SICAV SIF – Azure Fund

Tuesday, September 27, 2016
Opalesque Industry Update - As a result of several investors’ requests, Ayaltis has announced the launch of a new investment opportunity, the Areca SICAV SIF – Azure Fund.

Launched on August 1st 2016, this new addition to the Ayaltis product offering is the continuation of Ayaltis’ long standing expertise in identifying investment opportunities and enriches its product range with a fund fully dedicated to equity related securities.

The aim of the Azure Fund is to offer equity exposure in a risk-adjusted manner with limited volatility yet participating on the market upside while protecting the down-side. The portfolio is expected to benefit from volatile market environments while dampening the impact of market corrections. The underlying hedge funds focus on liquid equity related assets globally.

While putting an emphasis on the asset class, the portfolio is highly diversified across all sectors and geographic areas. The Azure Fund combines alternative investment opportunities across all investable equity related assets to benefit from dispersions, mispricing, short to medium term dislocations and market overreactions. With the addition of the Areca SICAV SIF - Azure Fund to the Ayaltis Product Family, we are pleased to offer investors an exceptional investment idea of equity related investment opportunities. For further information on the dedication Azure Fund and our company please contact our Ayaltis Investor Relations Team.

The Areca SICAV SIF – Azure Fund seeks to achieve a superior, risk-adjusted performance over the long-term through a concentrated portfolio of hedge funds. The target funds are broadly diversified across size, sectors and countries. The Azure Fund employs an opportunistic approach: The core part of the portfolio is comprised of diversified equity related hedge funds strategies with low market exposure, which rely either on a discretionary or systematic approach. The portfolio will be complemented with concentrated equity related long/short and tactical opportunities such as Event Driven and selected Global Macro strategies. One of the fund’s characteristics is to target a defensive performance in volatile market environments by investing in strong equity market neutral components. The objectives of the Azure Fund are a return net of fees between 8%-12% p.a. over a three to five-year investment horizon and a volatility of <8% p.a. The fund aims to maintain low correlation to equity, fixed income and commodity indices.
