Related Content Related Video White Papers Related Articles

Ajay Dayal, investment director at Legg Mason Global Asset Management, will discuss European long/short equity at the upcoming Fund Selector Absolute Return Focus event taking place in Milan on 11 June.

With long positions capturing cashflow generation and short positions taking advantage of companies with poor balance sheets, the ongoing investment environment across the region offers plenty of potential for the Martin Currie European Absolute Alpha fund to manage drawdown and volatility risk.

Dayal joined Legg Mason in 2008 as investment director. Previously, he worked at ABN Amro Asset Management as global product specialist for emerging market equities and the manager’s Asian product range. Before that he was at M&G Investments as a manager of Strategic Product Analysis and spent four years at Baring Asset Management as product specialist for Asian equities and as macro analyst in the emerging markets team.
