Global Equity Market Neutral

An equity strategy targeting positive absolute returns and low volatility in all market conditions

Overview

About this strategy

A long/short equity market neutral strategy that seeks positive absolute returns regardless of market conditions. We believe by combining fundamental stock picking with a quantitative portfolio construction and systematic risk management framework, we can help to diversify returns drivers and minimise unintended risks.

The value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise as a result of market and currency fluctuations and you may not get back the amount originally invested. Past performance does not predict future returns.

Glossary

Investment Approach

Market neutral
Our market neutral approach removes over-reliance on directionality, and an active equity long-short construct can deliver alpha from both winners and losers.

Best ideas
Stock picking experts from across the firm provide fundamentally researched, high-conviction ideas, diversified by region, sector and style. Ideas consist of a long and short idea linked by an investment thesis.

Quantitative construction
The lead portfolio manager applies systematic portfolio construction focused on capturing pure alpha and effectively allocating risk. We believe blending different investment styles and processes can deliver absolute returns across various market environments.
