The iShares Diversified Alternatives Trust seeks to maximize its returns by investing in long and/or short positions in foreign-currency forward contracts and exchange-traded futures contracts following investment strategies that use quantitative methodologies to identify potentially profitable discrepancies in relative values or market prices of one or more assets. The objective of the Trust is to maximize the absolute returns from investments with historically low correlation to traditional asset classes, while seeking to control the risks and volatility inherent in futures and forward contracts by taking long and short positions in historically correlated assets.
