ABOUT MARKET NEUTRAL FUND

The Alium Market Neutral Fund is for investors seeking to diversify into an investment where returns are not correlated with equities or other assets classes. The Fund takes a thematic, global approach to investing both long & short. Focus is given to changing operating conditions & how these may affect the value of individual companies. Particular focus is given to short themes, an area that is less well-researched & that aims to be a major source of alpha for the Fund over time.
