Dodging volatility by investing in gold, avoiding real estate
Financial Post, February 2013
Keeping volatility low is a key focus for James Hodgins, chief investment officer at Toronto-based CHS Asset Management.
In managing the Curvature Market Neutral Fund, which is distributed through Arrow Capital Management, Hodgins uses three distinct sub-strategies: quantitative, fundamental and event-driven.
All three are run market neutral, meaning they are equally weighted in terms of long and short positions. He also uses a risk overlay to reweight the positions to ensure the portfolio is market neutral in terms of sector and liquidity.
There is no regulatory minimum purchase amount requirement for investments in a Fund made by investors who qualify under the Accredited Investor
Exemption. However, the minimum initial purchase amount established by the Manager for "accredited investors" is $25,000 (or such lesser amount that
the Manager may accept from time to time).
The criteria for qualification as an "accredited investor" is defined in National Instrument 45-106 of the Canadian Securities Administrators and is
set out in the Subscription Instructions of the Investment Application.
(2) Minimum Amount Exemption (not available to individuals)
The minimum amount for an initial investment in a Fund made by an investor purchasing under the Minimum Amount Exemption is $150,000 in each
province and territory.
