The fund seeks capital appreciation by investing in six long/short equity strategies managed by the firm, according to a news release. The Turner Spectrum Fund will seek to capture alpha, reduce volatility, and preserve capital in declining markets by investing in the following long/short strategies, each managed by a separate portfolio management team at Turner:
- Turner Market Neutral strategy, directed by Robert Turner, lead portfolio manager, investing in stocks in all stock market sectors, with a typical allocation resulting in a market-neutral net exposure;

Although each strategy’s weighting in the fund will vary as a result of performance, Turner intends to rebalance each weighting equally at the end of every year, the company said.
