Kristal Founders Fund

Fund Strategy

Kristal Founders Fund (KFF) is a Macro hedge fund structured as a Singapore VCC sub-fund. The fund invests across all major global exchange traded asset classes. Asset Allocation is based on risk parity principles. Tail risk hedges are deployed on equity exposures, which could be 50 to 100% of portfolio and use index options and volatility indices. Upto 2X of NAV Leverage may be used opportunistically to benefit from market dislocations. The fund targets an IRR of 18% - 20% and may have large monthly drawdowns in line with Equity markets - as tail risk hedges typically kick in upon a 10% fall.
