NEW YORK, Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Laur Capital Management, LP ("Laur") recently announced plans to offer investment opportunities in Laur Capital Partners, LP to accredited investors, family offices and fund of funds.
Laur Capital Partners, LP is an opportunistic Long/Short Equity Hedge Fund (the "Fund"). Its Investment philosophy highly weights behavioral finance in the decision-making process taking a contrarian investment approach to exploit short term pricing dislocations. The Fund seeks to achieve annual returns, uncorrelated to any market index, by investing only in large cap securities.
Portfolio Manager, David Laurent, has deployed a similar investment approach throughout his career and has over 20 years of experience investing and building financial technology solutions.
Laur, in its fourth quarter letter to investors, discussed the probability of higher interest rates and additional quantitative easing in 2014, which, with the combination of one of the strongest bull market runs in history entering a 6th year, could result in as much as a 10% market decline as investor anxieties and volatility rise. Laur went on to state, based on past performance, it believes it can deliver maximum potential returns with increased volatility.
"The basis of my past investment success has been my ability to remain disciplined to my investment philosophy during times of extreme volatility and uncertainty." Said Mr. Laurent, "The strategy can actually perform better during these periods."
Laur plans to attend the Context Miami Summit at the Fontainebleu Miami Beach resort January 29th to the 31st in order to increase awareness about its strategy and investment opportunities. (www.contextsummits.com)
The Fund's service providers include industry specialists Rothstein Kass, Sadis & Goldberg LLP and Apex Fund Services (US) Inc. Financial firms Bank of America, Merrill Lynch and Interactive Brokers are amongst the Fund's custodian and banking relationships.
