Culross Absolute Defensive Fund

Legal Entity

Culross Absolute Defensive Fund is a sub-fund of Culross Funds S.A., SICAV-RAIF, a société anonyme incorporated under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg as a société d’investissement à capital variable – fonds d’investissement alternatif réservé. The Company is subject to the law of 23 July 2016 relating to reserved alternative investment funds, as amended or supplemented from time to time. Culross Funds S.A., SICAV-RAIF, the Company, is an Alternative Investment Fund within the meaning of the AIFM Law and 2013 Law.


The Culross Absolute Defensive Fund pursues a conservative investment strategy. The fund was launched in April 2001 and invests in a portfolio of funds that demonstrate low volatility and very low correlation to equity and bond markets. Typically this means the fund will not invest in directional equity long/short or directional credit managers. Rather, the fund is focused on managers pursuing market neutral, arbitrage and relative value strategies across a range of asset classes and regions and always includes a dynamically weighted allocation to protection strategies. The fund is designed to be a reliable return generator for investors seeking an alternative investment with bond-like return characteristics.


The fund seeks to generate low volatility returns with very low correlations to equities and bonds, or, where possible, negative correlations. Capital preservation and the avoidance of drawdowns is paramount. More particularly, the fund’s target performance is 3 month deposit rates + 3%, net of all fees and costs and with volatility of less than 3%.


The fund offers investors monthly liquidity on 35 days notice. The fund focuses on liquid investments in liquid asset classes.
