Pictet adds long/short global equity fund to range

The PTR-Atlas UCITS fund will be managed by a team of four - James Wigley, Adrien de Susanne d’Epinay and Philip Wilson, with Matthieu Fleck leading the team.

The fund is a daily liquidity, daily pricing fund that combines top-down analysis with bottom-up fundamental research, which has an objective of achieving long-term capital growth with a strong focus on preservation.

Fleck said: “Global equity markets continue to be volatile, driven by increasingly short business cycles and a global shift from monetary to fiscal policy. 

“This underlines the case for our long/short approach, which takes account of the top-down environment to drive our portfolio positioning and identifies where we are best rewarded to take risk, combined with rigorous bottom-up stock analysis to assess the relationship between price and fundamentals.”

This is the seventh fund to form part of the total return range, which now has total assets under management of $6.1bn.

The UCITS IV-compliant fund is currently registered for sale in Austria, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden and the UK.
