Absolute Return Fund

  • Categories:

A type of managed fund with a focus on providing a return to investors which is independent of the
general market. These fund managers use different strategies to traditional fund managers enabling
them to produce gains (or losses) regardless of what the general market is doing. The risk profiles of
these funds vary greatly from conservative to high risk so it’s important to understand the particular
strategy being used by the fund.
