Fund Strategy
The investment objective of the fund is to provide a fixed income stream while seeking to enhance returns through capital appreciation and the use of leverage. The fund is focused on the Lebanese debt markets and invests mostly in Lebanese Republic Eurobonds but also benefits from BDL Certificates of Deposit, T-Bills in LBP, notes in both USD and local currency and debt instruments issued by local financial institutions. 

The fund will be managed based on a prudent investment approach. It will be a non-diversified fund, focusing on fixed income instruments issued by Lebanese entities and the bulk of holdings will be sovereign bonds. 

The fund will benefit from the high carry environment that Lebanon enjoys. The manager will seek to enhance total return through active trading of mispriced securities, new issue premiums, technical momentum and other pricing anomalies.
