Axa Alternative Tail Hedge, launched in November 2010, is believed to be the first European fund of hedge funds (FoHF) product focused exclusively on tail risk strategies. The fund has exposure to a diversified basket of equity, credit, macro and volatility strategies that are expected to outperform significantly in periods when asset class correlation rises sharply and markets suffer large and unexpected declines.
