What are the risks?
All investments involve risk and you should consider investment risks before making an investment decision. The key risks of investing in the strategy include or are associated with:
Volatility Risk - The strategy aims to extract the difference between the implied volatility and realised volatility in global equity capital markets. For this reason, there is a market volatility risk where market realised volatility can exceed implied volatility.
International investments - The risk includes losses related to currency exchange rates, hedging, and changes in the state of the Australian and world economies.
Options Risk - An option is an agreement that, for a premium payment or fee, gives the option holder (the purchaser) the right but not the obligation to buy (a “call option”) or sell (a “put option”) the underlying asset (or settle for cash an amount based on an underlying asset, rate, or index) at a specified price (the “exercise price”) during a period of time or on a specified date. Investments in options are considered speculative. The prices of options are volatile and are influenced by, among other things, actual and anticipated changes in the value of the underlying instrument, or in interest or currency exchange rates, including the implied volatility, which in turn are affected by fiscal and monetary policies and by national and international political and economic events.
Swap Agreements Risk - Swap agreements involve the risk that the party with whom the Fund has entered into the swap will default on its obligation to pay the Fund.
