All of Antarctica’s portfolios seek absolute returns through strategy specific or diversified portfolios of hedge funds with varying degrees of targeted volatility and risk. Antarctica currently runs five Fund of Hedge Funds:
Antarctica Global Fund
Strategy: Global Diversified
Antarctica Global Fund, AGF, is an AIFMD compliant, Irish open-ended QIF (Qualifying Investor Fund) which was launched on 1st January 2016. It is a multi-strategy, multi-manager portfolio designed to invest and actively allocate capital to a number of carefully chosen established and proven hedge fund managers. It provides investors with a unique opportunity to enter the hedge fund space in a diversified fashion, with some of the industry’s most coveted fund managers globally. Select managers with exceptional quality who have proven track records of performing over time and through economic cycles. The portfolio is built with relatively low directional exposure and will focus on structural inefficiencies in global markets. Over half of the portfolio at launch is invested in and provides exposure to hedge funds which are capacity constrained or hard closed and difficult for investors to access at this time making it difficult to replicate.
Antarctica Global Opportunities Fund
Strategy: Diversified non directional
Aims to allocate to a range of non-traditional risk and return drivers that over time deliver a consistently attractive return stream with lower volatility and less correlation to equity markets. The performance objective is to deliver consistent returns commensurate with annualised volatility of less than 5% and limited correlation to equity markets over a full market cycle.
Antarctica Asian Opportunities Fund
Strategy: Pan Asia Diversified
Antarctica Asian Opportunities Fund (“AAOF”) is a multi-strategy, multi-manager fund of hedge funds that focuses on Pan Asia with an emphasis on core markets, including Greater China, Japan and South Korea. The view is that there are rapidly maturing capital markets in Asia, combined with dynamic underlying economies that are providing the opportunities to access both traditional and non-traditional risk factors to generate attractive returns.
Antarctica Credit and Distressed Fund
Strategy: Credit and Distressed
Focused on actively allocating capital to a variety of hedge funds following a range of investment strategies in the credit and distressed market. The Fund aims to deliver returns throughout a credit cycle whilst avoiding the extremes exhibited by a traditional approach. The resultant return stream is based on directional exposure to a variety of specific risk factors that may not be present in a portfolio of credit instruments.
