Schroder GAIA Helix

Aim to build your wealth steadily, over the long term, through any environment

Why invest in multi-strategy hedge funds now?

Timing the market is challenging, particularly around avoiding downside events and knowing when to re-enter markets. Market neutral strategies can be one solution, as they focus on returns that are not dependent on the direction of markets. This means they can participate in market upside as well as providing downside protection. 

There are many ways a multi-strategy approach can be defined and structured. We favour a market neutral, multi-manager approach that focuses on alpha generation through stock selection and doesn’t rely on any single approach to drive returns.

Looking for a diversifier to help you navigate all market conditions?
