Asset Allocation As of December 31, 2023

The Fund invests in a wide range of assets for the purpose of diversification, which results in lower risk. The pie chart illustrates the broadest categories of our investment portfolio. To see dollar allocation, move your cursor over each slice.

Alternative Assets

Diversifying Hedge Funds
Funds are those whose portfolios have a low correlation to world equity markets. This includes funds who seek profit from mispricings in security markets, and who do even more “hedging out” of unwanted risk exposures. Such strategies tend to involve less equity exposure, and tend to focus on currencies and fixed income instruments.

Directional Hedge Funds
Funds are those whose portfolios are moderately correlated with world equity markets. This includes, but is not limited to, funds who hold both long and short positions in various stocks/bonds, whereas traditional asset managers tend to be “long-only”.

Private Equity
An asset class consisting of equity securities in operating companies that are not publicly traded on stock exchange. Among the most common investment strategies in private equity are leveraged buyouts, venture capital, and growth capital.

Real Estate
Investing in real estate that may span both private and public opportunities. This may include real estate properties, as well as companies or other investments relating to real estate and other physical assets.

Natural Resources
Commodity and other natural resources related investments (e.g, energy, metals, food and others). Investments may be in public or private strategies and securities.


U.S Equity
Common stocks representing equity ownership in a corporation, providing voting rights, and entitling the holder to a share of the company’s success through dividends and/or capital appreciation.

International Emerging Markets
Common stocks of companies based outside of the United States. Emerging Markets are generally regarded as less advanced on these metrics. As such, they are often more volatile / risky, but are generally faster-growing.

International Developed Markets
Developed Markets are countries generally regarded as more advanced in their economic, social and political development and hence less volatile / risky.

Debt obligations issued by the U.S. government. Treasuries are guaranteed by the “full faith and credit” of the U.S. government.

Senior Secured Loans

Securitized Products
