Key characteristics of Legends Fund

Legends Fund holds a portfolio of 10 hedge fund luminaries. The Fund strives to invest with only the world’s best hedge fund managers for each of the main hedge fund strategies. These managers have proven over a sustained period of time to be able to achieve strong, positive returns in different market environments. We expect our selection of managers to continue to outperform their peers and to achieve excellent long term risk-adjusted performance. On average, Theta Capital has been invested with these managers for more than ten years.

The underlying Legends have been selected from a large universe of over 10.000 hedge funds worldwide through a thorough due diligence process taking into account a large number of qualitative and quantitative aspects. The portfolio is constructed to achieve optimal diversification benefits by dividing its risk budget over different hedge fund strategies: Long-Short Equity, Event-Driven, Global Macro and Relative Value & Credit.

Investors in Legends Fund are exposed to certain risk factors, the most important ones are mentioned below:

  • Market Risks
    The underlying hedge funds invest across liquid markets and will from time to time occur losses when these markets move against them.
  • External Managers
    As Legends Fund’s capital is invested in other investment funds, the ultimate investment decisions are being made by the underlying, external managers over which we have limited control.
  • Leverage
    Legends Fund may invest in funds that can invest more than 100% of the fund’s capital using borrowed money which can amplify both gains and losses.
