Comparison with protection-themed funds

Exceed solutions offer a level of investment protection which may compare favorably to other protection themed products, including low volatility funds as well as hedge funds. The defined nature of our offerings leads to a degree of predictability that we believe is unmatchable by other equity solutions.
