The fund will be managed by Brian Singer, Edwin Denson and
Thomas Clarke, members of William Blair’s Dynamic Allocation Strategies Team, a
group that has worked together for more than 13 years, beginning at Brinson
Partners (now UBS, at Singer Partners and now at William Blair).
The fund employs a global macro asset allocation strategy. This strategy attempts to exploit periodic market inefficiencies by taking long and short positions in various asset classes (e.g., equity, fixed income and currencies) with a view to profit from relative movements across and within such asset classes.
As a total return fund, it is designed to augment a strategic allocation with a tactical, dynamic view of markets and currencies, the company says. The fund managers believe an allocation to this fund will position a strategic portfolio to benefit from temporary tactical market dislocations over the course of a market cycle.
