RAM Active Investments (RAM AI) has launched a long/short global equity fund for the Swiss market, the company has announced.
The managers have been responsible for managing RAM AI’s systematic funds since 2007, which includes European and emerging markets-focused funds.
This new fund aims to capture market inefficiencies from a universe of over 6,000 stocks in the developed market universe. It does this through a quantitative model, which focuses on fundamental and behavioural-based stock selection.
The managers hope to produce consistent risk-adjusted returns with a diversified portfolio of more than 800 stocks with no correlation to the underlying market.
Commenting on the launch, de Saint-Seine said: 'In an environment of increased uncertainty and market volatility, stock selection requires a disciplined approach. Our beta neutral and actively-managed strategy mitigates against market exposure and downside risk.'
