RAM introduces global L/S equity fund to Swiss market

RAM introduces global L/S equity fund to Swiss market

RAM Active Investments (RAM AI) has launched a long/short global equity fund for the Swiss market, the company has announced.

The RAM (Lux) Systematic Funds – Long/Short Global Equities fund is managed by Thomas de Saint-Seine, Maxime Botti and Emmanuel Hauptmann.

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.'
