Verrazzano European Long Short

This European equity long short fund is co-managed by former Gartmore manager Guillaume Rambourg and Karim Moussalem, former co-head of European One Delta trading at Goldman Sachs. The Verrazzano European Long Short UCITS fund runs pari-passu with Verrazzano’s flagship European Opportunities fund (offshore). The investment philosophy is based around a highly disciplined investment process that seeks to deliver secure compound growth without taking excessive risk. The portfolio is built around two books, the first containing core positions of the highest conviction ideas, which are typically held for six to eighteen month where the focus is on identifying stocks with the potential for earnings surprises. The second book is more tactical in nature and is designed to take advantage of market anomalies and technical situations over shorter time periods (from a few days to 6 months). The UCITS fund has delivered a solid first year’s of performance, and as such we award the fund a four star rating.
