The Guggenheim Risk Managed Real Estate Fund seeks to deliver attractive returns while managing the volatility and drawdown risks associated with investing in long only real estate investment trusts (REITs). The Fund pursues this goal by dynamically allocating between a Long Only Strategy and a Market Neutral Strategy and this innovative approach allows the Fund to increase REIT exposure when the real estate outlook is bullish, or decrease when bearish --potentially making the Fund a complete solution for REIT exposure in any market environment.
