Argonaut’s Barry Norris to discuss European long/short equity at Lausanne Summit

Barry Norris, founding partner and fund manager at Argonaut Capital Partners will outline the long/short equity approach to Europe when he takes part in the upcoming Pan-European Summit Lausanne 2016, 19-21 April.

With the European region offering a multitude of risk and reward opportunities, Norris will discuss how Argonaut, which he founded, identifies both positive and negative earnings surprises, and how a long/short portfolio of single stocks can produce absolute returns in a changing market environment.

Norris graduated from Cambridge University in 1996 with an MA in History, and in 1997 with an MPhil in International Relations (with distinction). He also holds the CFA charter, IMC and IIMR qualifications.

Following graduation, Norris joined Baillie Gifford, moving to Neptune Investment Management in June 2002 as head of European Equities. There he had sole responsibility for the European Opportunities Fund from its launch in November 2002. He left Neptune to found Argonaut Capital Partners with Oliver Russ in 2005, and currently runs the FP Argonaut European Alpha fund, the FP Argonaut European Absolute Return fund and the Argonaut Pan European Alpha fund.
