Where a benchmark is referenced, the investment team will use it for performance comparisons with their Fund or Strategy, as deemed appropriate. For the avoidance of doubt the Fund or Strategy’s objective is not to track the performance of an index or benchmark. The Fund or Strategy does not charge any performance fees and, accordingly, no fees are paid to the Investment Manager on the basis of outperformance of an index or benchmark.
