Volatility premium as an alternative source of return
The Premium Income fund pursues the goal of systematically skimming volatility risk premiums from equities to provide investors with an alternative (beta) source of return. By combining different strategy building blocks, a diversified portfolio is constructed to generate predominantly independent returns. The underlying investment is predominantly bonds with good credit ratings and short to medium maturities.
