About the session

At Endowus, making access to private and illiquid assets easier for individual investors is an important part of our mission to democratise wealth management for everyone.

Most recently, a part of the industry we have been looking to revolutionise through better access, advice, and lower cost is absolute return multi-strategy hedge funds. This asset class has traditionally been difficult to access and often exclusively available to institutional investors.

“Absolute return” strategies within the hedge fund asset class focus on generating a positive return over any period through cycles, which is different from the more common relative return strategies that focus on returns relative to a specific benchmark.

Well-known asset managers that implement these strategies include: Millennium, Point72, Balyasny, Brevan Howard, Eisler, Hudson Bay, LMR, and Schonfeld.

Join us for an exclusive webinar hosted by Samuel Rhee, Chairman & Chief Investment Officer, Hugh Chung, Chief Investment Advisory Officer, and Sean Wong, Head of Investments.

In this webinar, we will cover topics including:

  • What multi-manager multi-strategy hedge funds are
  • Why having a low correlation diversified absolute return allocation in a portfolio is ideal
  • How to generate consistent returns with limited drawdown through multiple market cycles
