Fortem Capital Progressive Growth Fund

Monthly Report – 29th January 2021

UK & EU – For professional and institutional investors only
Switzerland – this is an advertising document for professional and institutional clients as defined by the Swiss Financial Services Act only

Investment objective

The Fund aims to provide positive returns of 6-7% over the medium to long term, whilst aiming to reduce equity market beta in short term draw-downs. It will invest in a Core portfolio comprised of defined return equity strategies that aim to provide capital growth over the medium to longer term, in all but extreme negative market scenarios. The Fund will make a smaller allocation to Diversifying investments that also meet strict capital preservation and investment return criteria.

The Fund will

• Employ stringent counterparty controls, limiting credit exposure to high grade sovereign risk.
• Mitigate against material single index exposure via robust portfolio construction and management.
• Impose strict exposure limits to each investment, strike level, barrier level.

Monthly update

Equity markets began 2021 as they left 2020, riding a blue wave of further stimulus hopes, an end in sight to the pandemic, and a political rebirth in the US. But, as the month drew on, hope turned to panic as the r/wallstreetbets

Total Return 2021 Jan
Uk 100 -0.8% -0.8%
US 500 -1.0% -1.0%
Europe 50 -1.9% -1.9%
Swiss 300 -1.1% -1.1%
Japan 225 0.8% 0.8%
Hong Kong 50 3.9% 3.9%
US 2000 5.0% 5.0%
FCPGF -1.6% -1.6%

bros sent volatility soaring and markets
tumbling, to the extent that a number gave up all of the gains and more that had accrued in January to that point. The indices to which the Fund is predominately exposed ended the month down 0.8% and 1.9%.

Within the Core Portfolio, which is short volatility, the month-end spike in volatility was the Fund’s biggest detractor. Elsewhere, spot moves in the indices to which the Fund is exposed, dividends and rates were also negative contributors. Theta (time) contributed positively.

The Diversifier Portfolio was flat over the month. The Fund’s long rates volatility strategies, which take advantage of the structural anomaly that is the downward sloping term structure of US rates volatility, were the biggest contributors. Commodity strategies offset those gains as curves continued to strengthen into backwardation.

January provided a good example of how short term spikes in volatility affect funds deriving their returns from autocall-like strategies. It is for those short bursts of volatility that the Diversifier Portfolio is employed, to smooth the edges of the harshest spikes, as they did in March last year. But, while the Fund will give up something as volatility rises, it is also true that it recoups it as volatility falls again. And that the long term return will still be governed by the terms of the individual investments, and them satisfying their final barriers.

Fund performance (%) – Share Class A (Acc) versus proxy basket of equity indices

FTSE D30 Index

*** Proxy basket of indices consists of underlying indices to which the Fund has market sensitivity, as measured by delta. Their weight within the basket is rebalanced each month end to match that of the Fund’s delta, normalised to an overall basket weight of 100%.

For example May 2019 the UK market delta = 21% and overall Fund delta = 50%, UK weight in proxy basket = 21% / 50% = 42%. This methodology is
applied for each underlying equity index.

The weights as calculated at May 2019 will be applied for calculating June 2019’s historical performance for the Proxy basket
