NEW YORK, Sept. 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Birch Century International, an independent provider of alternative investment solutions, today announced the launch of the Long/Short Global Equity Fund aimed at providing retail investors and institutional clients with an alternative exposure to global equity markets.
Based in Hong Kong and New York, Birch Century International will manage the fund as an extension to its existing alternative investment offering in line with a systematic investment process that prioritizes the protection of assets against downside risk. The Long/Short Global Equity Fund will actively invest in emerging and developed market index futures with a focus on moderate value tilt.
To address the ever changing investor profile, the Long/Short Global Equity Fund will be initially available to existing retail and institutional clients, registered as a close-end managed fund under 1009 reporting standards.
"As market conditions remain uncertain, and with a number of macro-economic events likely to prolong the period, our retail investors and institutional clients are looking for ways to preserve their capital against the turbulent effects of unforeseen events," said Matthew Sotherby, Alternative Asset Analyst, Birch Century International.
"Extending our existing alternative investment platform with the Long/Short Global Equity Fund, we present investors with a liquid alternative solution that seeks to capture the benefits of a global equity portfolio whilst trading between market inefficiencies in order to mitigate risk exposure. Essentially, the strategy aims to address investor concerns in response to an uneasy imbalance in the risk-reward equation of equity market positioning," continued Sotherby.
For further information, clients are requested to contact their Birch Century adviser directly.
