GAM launches Market Neutral Equity fund

GAM has announced the launch of its new Systematic Global Equity Market Neutral fund, the group’s first quantitative equity strategy aimed at offering an uncorrelated return compared to a long-only equity portfolio.

The Ucits compliant fund will invest in a universe consisting of the 2500 most liquid stocks worldwide based on a methodology developed by the Cantab Investment team following GAM’s acquisition of Cantab in October this year.

Anthony Lawler, co-head of GAM Systematic comments on the launch: “Our global equity market neutral product benefits from the results of years of research and system development. The combination of diversification, performance and excellent risk management makes it a very attractive equity product for our clients, particularly in the current market environment.”
