Why no benchmarks?

I feel your shame at such abysmal performance, but why no benchmarks for comparison?

Dear Anonymous

The fund is benchmarked and our performance is comfortably a head of it. You don’t identify yourself for some reason? Which may imply you need help to understand the success of the fund and its 16.46% return to date. Please feel free to contact us with your information and we will be happy to help you.

Kind regards

Roddy Kohn
