Long/Short Equities
While the S&P 500 was down -0.9% for the month and +1.94% year-to-date, the Trading Advisor
continues to generate profits while providing the portfolio with some hedge for the downside. The
research team is confident in the US economy for the next 12 to 18 months.
Fund of Funds
The fund added three new funds during the month in the following sectors: relative value multi strategy,
fixed income and credit arbitrage, equity long/short – bringing the total of funds up to 39.
This month, the nine equity Long/short funds which comprise 26% of the portfolio weight, contributed
41% of the month’s return. No strategy group lost money for the month.
Options Arbitrage
The strategy remained invested in T-bills during August owing to a significant equity sell-off.
CTA
Except for the energy sector, virtually all of the other strategies lost money because of the sharp trend
reversals. Currency and interest rate sectors were the largest negative performers due to a weakening
dollar and adverse moves in both ends of the interest rates curve.
Unfortunately, the energy book, while
profitable, was too small a part of the portfolio to overcome the losses in the other books.
Multi Strategy
The energy and event driven arbitrage made the largest contribution to August’s performance month-to-
date. The healthcare/biotech book made the largest loss contribution to performance. Leverage
continues at about 1 (excluding the fixed income book).
Distressed / High Yield Trading
This may be a perfect time for the strategy. The performance is driven by bankruptcy court and other
events occurring to the companies held in the portfolio. In August, as well as in July, events in the
utility names and in wireless telephony names generated most of the return.
