LONDON, May 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Fasanara Capital (or "Fasanara") has been awarded as the best multi-strategy emerging manager at the Hedge Funds Review European Single Manager Awards' gala event held last night in London.
The Hedge Funds Review Single Managers Awards is the most prestigious event held exclusively for the European hedge fund industry. The awards recognize the best hedge funds in Europe.
This year's judging panel was composed by Andrew McCaffery, Global Head of Alternatives at Aberdeen Asset Management; Kathryn Graham, Head of Strategy at the Universities Superannuation Scheme (USS); Ian Morley, adviser at AllenbridgeEpis Investment Advisers; Tushar Patel, CIO of HFIM; Matthew Roberts, Portfolio Manager at Willis Towers Watson; and Chris Jones, Managing Director at Graham Capital.
Fasanara's liquid alternative investment strategy seeks to achieve:
- Lower volatility than the broad indices;
- Lower correlation to traditional fixed income and equity markets;
- Long term capital appreciation; and
- Downside protection
The strategy has been developed in response to the growing universe of negative rates and in response to the investors' need for positive yields and downside risk protection.
In an effort to accomplish its investment objective and generate fairly consistent returns, Fasanara implements a wide range of unconstrained exposures across asset classes, principal strategies and time horizons. A very strict risk management methodology is applied imposing a tight, non-discretionary stop-loss mechanism to the portfolio.
The portfolio construction process centers around three principal strategies, which are highly complementary, yet uncorrelated: the Value; Hedging & Cheap Optionality and the Tactical sleeve.
The Fasanara's investment process is characterized by a deep research effort that seeks to outline, in primis, core macro views. In fact, while fundamental bottom-up analysis represents an important component of the strategy, top down macro views consistently influence the implementation of the value investments and hedging strategies.
