Long-only quantitative equity strategy focused on Europe. The fund analyses short and long term stock momentum to capture various momentum biases. The Fund aims to achieve capital appreciation and generate outperformance over benchmark indices.
Strategy development began in 2010 and was first implemented in September 2012 as a sub-strategy within the firm’s flagship multi-strategy hedge fund. In December 2015 the strategy was adapted for launch as a standalone UCITS fund.
The fund follows a three-step investment process based on a momentum strategy, a trend following strategy, and a strategy to handle asset allocation. The process is based on quantitative models developed internally and systematic risk management is applied at a portfolio level based on BG’s extensive risk management experience.
