Alternative investment funds

Funds that use more sophisticated financial techniques and instruments than those of traditional investment funds (derivatives products, leverage, short-selling). The alternative investment approach aims to generate absolute return rather than performance to a benchmark and seeks to decorrelate performances from equity and bond markets.
