Fulcrum Alternative Managers (FAM) is our longest-running multi-manager solution, with a continuous track record of more than a decade. Offered via a weekly dealing UCITS structure, its objective is to generate a return of Cash + 3-5% over rolling 5-year periods with a volatility of 3-5% and an equity beta below 0.2. We allocate exclusively to liquid UCITS hedge funds and negotiate aligned outcome-based fee structures with established teams seeking to launch new funds.

This results in a targeted portfolio of 15-20 fund holdings across Equity Long/Short, Relative Value, Event Driven, Systematic and Discretionary Macro strategies. We believe clients should not pay more than 30% of gross alpha in fees and focus our extensive qualitative and quantitative research process on achieving this goal while meeting our risk and return targets.
