The Alternative Multi-Manager Fund is designed to complement a traditional portfolio of stocks, bonds and cash,” says David Perkins (pictured), Chief Executive Officer, Hatteras Funds. “The Fund provides diversified alternatives exposure in a single investment. We believe it can help reduce volatility and dampen the impact of a market drawdown.”
