Hillsdale Launches Global Long/Short Equity Fund
TORONTO, November 30, 2009 — Hillsdale Investment Management is pleased to announce the launch of the Hillsdale Global Long/Short Equity Fund.
Over the past several years, Hillsdale has invested significantly in the development of its international equity expertise, which includes the critical areas of country specific stock selection, risk management, currency hedging and trade execution. With its own assets, Hillsdale has accumulated a two year track record in successfully managing a global long/short equity strategy during the most challenging market conditions.
As shown below, Hillsdale has added this expertise to the US Long/Short Equity Fund. The increase in international content is accomplished by removing the minimum U.S. content requirement, previously at 80% of total assets, and replacing it with the ability to invest around the world with a maximum of 60% in any one country. Increasing the number of countries in which the fund may invest and reducing its reliance on the U.S. market will increase the investable universe of stocks, allow for greater diversity of holdings, facilitate the achievement of additional returns and improve the risk management process. As a consequence of these changes, the name of the US Long/Short Equity Fund has been changed to the Hillsdale Global Long/Short Equity Fund. It will continue to be offered in both U.S. and Canadian dollars.
