American small and mid-caps exposure with low volatility through a unique long/short approach.

Fundamental stock-picking fund following a long/short strategy and managed by a specialist team based in Denver, USA. The objective is to provide exposure to the small and mid-cap market segment with low volatility.
This investment universe is under investors’ radar, has greater dispersion of returns and limited crowding, enabling alpha generation for both the long and the short books (no ETFs used). The fund benefits from American mid and small caps’ performance, whilst presenting proven capital preservation in weak markets and lower volatility. The rigorous investment process leads to steady and compelling risk adjusted returns.
