Longchamp LKF Fund

Investment Objectives

The Investment objective of the Fund is to generate a variable annual income to be distributed through a flexible approach.

To achieve its objective, the Fund will tend to invest 100% of its assets in long dated Italian Government Bonds (BTPs) and will swap the BTP performance against a variety of profiles including strategies based on Equities, Rates, FX, Credit, Funds.

Swap will be entered with primary financial institutions in open architecture. They will provide exposure to various underlyings:

  • Linear exposure (delta 1)
  • Structured payoffs (synthetic structured product)

In its initial allocation, the Fund will enter into a swap to get exposure to an tier-1 investment bank’s “Put Writing Strategy”.

The returns will be distributed at least once a year.

The allocation will vary over time according to the opportunity set identified by the Management Team.
