  • Asset Class Alternatives


The GMO Multi-Strategy seeks positive total return by allocating to other investment strategies managed by GMO and investing directly in long and short positions in a variety of asset classes. The underlying vehicles each employ a different investment strategy and also hold both long and short positions in various asset classes. GMO’s Asset Allocation team seeks to achieve the Strategy’s objective with low volatility relative to equity markets and expects a low correlation to traditional market indices over a full market cycle.
