Gruss Capital Management's (GCM) investment objective is to achieve absolute returns while preserving investor capital. The firm seeks to meet this objective by investing opportunistically in global markets using a combination of event-driven investment strategies. These event-driven strategies typically involve investing in opportunities created by corporate actions, regulatory/legislative events and market dislocations, in each case, where inefficiencies, mispricings and catalysts allow for attractive risk-adjusted returns. GCM utilizes investments in equities, bonds, loans, options, credit default swaps and other instruments. They seek to manage risk by utilizing adequate diversification and liquidity while attempting to hedge unwanted market risk by employing credit default swaps, out-of-the-money options, futures, ETFs and other instruments.

The portfolio contains mainly growth stocks, but value stocks also make up the asset allocation of the fund. Diversification is accomplished by DFM, which does not require fund manager intervention, and fund strategy is independent of any benchmark.The portfolio has no specific sector or industry allocation. Several different investment strategies are utilized simultaneously, aiming to realize an optimal compromise between different revenue profiles. The fund is always completely invested and is denominated in Euros. Foreign currency risks are mainly hedged.
