Lynx has shown good performance since inception. The return compares favorably with international hedge funds.
The more types of assets that are combined in a portfolio, the lower the total risk. Lynx's performance has historically shown a very low correlation, not only with stock markets but also with other types of hedge funds. Lynx is therefore attractive for use as a building block in a portfolio if the goal is to reduce the total risk.
Lynx and other hedge funds within the fund category known as Managed Futures have historically earned healthy returns during periods of financial turbulence and when stock markets have performed weakly. An investment that has a tendency to increase in value when the stock market is falling naturally appeals to many investors.
Despite the positive characteristics above, it is important that potential investors are also familiar with the risks that an investment can entail.
