Strategy introduction

In today’s markets, investors are increasingly seeking greater stability in returns and managed volatility as well as an element of capital preservation. Our strategy is designed to meet these objectives.

The European market offers a large and liquid opportunity set with multiple pricing inefficiencies. We believe an equity long/short strategy, implemented by experienced investors provides the best way to exploit these opportunities.
