French boutique manager Karakoram launches the K2 fund, an absolute return strategy mixing convertible bonds with short transactions on equity markets. The equity exposure is kept market neutral, fluctuating between -30% and +30%. The fund will be managed with a 3% volatility target and aims to outperform Eonia + 5% over a three-year investment horizon.
