Ardea Real Outcome Fund


Manager Summary

Founded in 2008, Ardea Investment Management is a fixed income investment manager with a focus on delivering controlled returns to clients.

Ardea adopts a unique 'relative value' investment approach which targets reliable risk-adjusted returns that are independent of market direction and exhibit low correlation to broader fixed income and equity markets.

Strategy Summary

Ardea's Real Outcome Fund adopts the 'relative value' investment strategy to access a wide range of fixed income return sources that are not affected by the level or direction of interest rates. The portfolio is constructed to achieve risk diversification by combining many modestly sized and uncorrelated relative value positions, so that no single position becomes a dominant driver of overall portfolio risk. Ardea believe this approach delivers more stable returns, with lower risk, compared to portfolios with large directional positions that can overwhelm a Fund's risk/return profile.
