Fund objective
DB Platinum IV Basso (the “Fund”) is an open-ended UCITS compliant fund that seeks to achieve risk adjusted returns by investing and trading in debt, equity, options, derivative contracts and securities instruments with an emphasis on convertible, exchangeable equity linked securities. This is generally bonds, preferred stock or mandatorily convertible preferred securities and related instruments that the investment manager believes are appropriate to hedge certain exposures in a portfolio. The Investment Manager of the Fund is Basso Capital Management, L.P. (“Basso”). The Fund follows a convertible arbitrage investment strategy whereby the fund will typically offset a long position in a convertible security with the short sale of the company’s underlying common stock in an attempt to limit total downside risk. Although Basso from time-to-time engages in opportunistic trades as the market warrants, its core investment philosophy focuses on bottoms-up, fundamental analysis of issuers and the terms of their securities. Basso believes that its limited reliance on models and emphasis on underlying fundamentals, structures and dislocations set it apart from its peer group that trades similar strategies. It is Basso’s perception that many of its peers invest in trades focusing primarily on model outputs and giving limited, if any weight to fundamentals, idiosyncratic risk and structural opportunities. 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 try to increase returns by increasing the exposure to certain investments (leverage). The leverage is not expected to exceed 900% of the value of the Fund but may be higher in a low market volatility environment.
