This document provides a comprehensive and open analysis of the various stages of managing the fund, from the high level methodology to tactical asset allocation and from idea generation to portfolio construction. Fund selectors wanting to understand in detail how the fund delivers on its objectives will find this a valuable resource.
In a sector dominated by complex products, the Tenax Absolute Return Strategies Fund is notable for its straightforward approach to investing. It is based on three core principles: a clear performance objective, over a specified time period partnered with appropriate controls to minimise volatility.
Operating as multi-asset solution, Tenax has enjoyed significant growth in recent years having attracted the attention of fund selectors looking for a defensive holding in their portfolios to protect against the worst extremes of market volatility. With its origins in a private investor portfolio, where the primary need was for long-term preservation of capital, the management style is one of patience in pursuit of the returns investors expect without the shocks they fear.
Church House can invest in equities as well and has a lot of flexibility in terms of asset class. If they like equities, for instance, they can start building positions in equities, but they are not going to be an equity fund - they're trying to protect client capital. They're very transparent with what they are holding in their portfolio.
