Investment Objective The investment seeks long term total return. The fund employs an investment approach that makes both long and short investments in the commodity markets. To identify investments for the fund, the Advisor analyzes the 24 commodity positions included in the Credit Suisse MOVERS Index. Commodities are assets that have tangible properties, such as oil, metals, and agricultural products. It does not invest directly in physical commodities, but gains synthetic exposure to commodity positions primarily through investments in commodity-linked derivative instruments, including commodity index-linked notes and swap agreements. The fund is non-diversified.
