The Perspective American Absolute Alpha UCITS Fund strives to provide positive absolute returns by employing a long /short equity investment strategy that is focused predominantly on North America.

The mandate of the fund is to deliver longer-term capital appreciation for investors within a low, but variable net exposure framework of -20% to +20% (typical) that does not subject investors to the cyclicality of broader equity markets. The investment team synthesizes fundamental bottom-up with top-down macro analysis, with an emphasis on ex-ante risk assessment in a process called Alpha Roll-up that portfolio manager Steve Moore has successfully deployed over the past two decades.

Portfolio construction is based on the synthesis of bottom-up and top-down information provided by 5 different investment modules to establish the risk/reward hypothesis, using systems that leverage advanced data-analytics. A diversified short portfolio is composed of individual equities that are selected to generate alpha, and not for hedging purposes.
