The Fund invests primarily in high quality, short-term money market instruments (and forward currency contracts) denominated in currencies of foreign countries and markets that historically have experienced low inflation rates.
Our strategy is to employ a range of analytic frameworks and only when a preponderance of evidence across our three tiers of analysis supports a given currency valuation will we overweight that given currency.
