CC&L All Strategies

Investment Objective

  • Provide an absolute return and volatility target between 12% and 15% over four-year periods.
  • Provide returns that have a low correlation with the equity markets.
  • Maximize long-term total return relative to the FTSE TMX Canada 91 Day TBill Index through prudent selection of investments.


  • Investments in different asset classes and investment processes.
  • Low correlations to equity and fixed income markets.
  • Ability to take advantage of negative insights.

Product Strategy

  • The CC&L All Strategies Fund is a well-diversified portfolio that invests in a complementary set of absolute return strategies to provide diversified sources of return and attractive risk/return characteristics.
  • The strategy will use leverage and borrow securities to facilitate short selling.

Investment Process

  • Plus three distinct market neutral strategies (Alpha):
    • Q Global Equity Market Neutral: Takes long and short positions in global stocks including US, Canada, EAFE and Emerging Markets using a disciplined quantitative process to create a market neutral strategy.
