Fund objective
DB Platinum Ivory Optimal (the “Fund”) is an open-ended UCITS compliant fund that seeks capital growth via high, risk adjusted absolute returns with low correlation to market indices through a long and short investment strategy. The Investment Manager of the Fund is Ivory Investment Management L.P. (“Ivory”). The Fund invests generally in publiclytraded U.S. shares but may invest a portion of its assets globally. The strategy is based on fundamental bottom-up research to determine fundamental value of long and short positions. Ivory aims to achieve its investment objectives primarily by purchasing securities trading at prices below their fundamental value; conversely, selling short securities trading at prices above such fundamental value. The returns are expected to be derived from individual security selection (“alpha”) as opposed to overall market exposure (“beta”). In particular, Ivory aims to capitalize on situations in which factors other than a security's fundamental value unduly influence its trading price. In selecting core long positions, Ivory focuses on securities of companies with misperceived business models generating excess economic returns that, while currently misunderstood by the marketplace, will likely be revalued over a reasonable time horizon. Ivory seeks to invest in companies with valuable franchises, positive industry dynamics, strong management, solid asset protection or a willingness among insiders to increase shareholder value. In selecting core short positions, Ivory generally seeks to identify companies with deteriorating fundamentals, competitive pressures, weakening balance sheets and declining, or even negative, free cash flows. Financial contracts (derivatives) may be used for investment purposes and to aim to reduce inflation, interest rate and/or foreign currency exposure in respect of the assets (hedging). Derivatives may also be used to increase returns by increasing the exposure to certain investments (leverage). The leverage is not expected to exceed 400% of the value of the Fund.

Risk statistics
Alpha
?Alpha is a measure of a fund's over- or under-performance by comparison to its benchmark. If the Alpha is 5, the fund has outperformed its benchmark by 5%; so the greater the Alpha, the greater the outperformance.
-
Beta
?Beta estimates a fund's volatility by comparison to that of its benchmark. A fund with a beta close to 1 means that the fund will move generally in line with the benchmark. Higher than 1 and the fund is more volatile than the benchmark and vice versa.
-
Sharpe
?This commonly-used measure calculates the level of return over and above the return of a notional risk-free investment, such as cash. The difference in returns is then divided by the fund's volatility. The resulting ratio is an indication of the amount of excess return generated per unit of risk.
-
Volatility
?Volatility (or standard deviation), when applied to an investment fund, expresses its risk. It shows how widely a range of returns varied from the fund's average return over a particular period. For example, if a fund had an average return of 5%, and its volatility was 15, this would mean that the range of its returns over the period had swung between +20% and -10%.
-
Tracking error
?This measures the standard deviation of a fund's excess returns over the returns of an index or benchmark portfolio. As such, it can be an indication of 'riskiness' in the manager's investment style. A Tracking Error below 2 suggests a passive approach. At 3 and above the the manager will be deploying a more active investment style.
-
Information ratio
?This is a useful risk-adjusted measure of actively managed fund performance. It is calculated by deducting the returns of the fund's benchmark from the fund's overall returns, then dividing the result by its tracking error. The higher the Information Ratio the better. It is generally considered that a figure of 0.5 reflects a good performance, 0.75 very good, and 1.00 outstanding.
-
R-Squared
?An indication of how closely correlated a fund is to an index or a benchmark. Values for R-Squared range between 0 and 1, with 0 indicating no correlation at all and 1 showing a perfect match. Values upwards of 0.7 suggest that the fund's behaviour is increasingly linked to its benchmark.
