The Investment Universe

The fund focuses on European and US companies with market cap above $1 billion, which either leverage a sustainability-driven competitive advantage at attractive valuations (longs), or which are disrupted by sustainability trends (shorts).

Risk Management Strategy

The fund has put in place a sophisticated risk management approach. It seeks idiosynchratic (stock-specific) exposure while managing factor or style tilts, and has established a strong trading discipline and use of hedging overlays to reduce tail risks.
