AH Equity Long / Short UCITS Index

Equity Long/Short is an investing strategy that seeks to profit from stock specific fundamentals by taking long positions in stocks that are expected to appreciate, and short positions in stocks that are expected to decline. By having both long and short equity positions, funds can benefit from the spread in performance between the longs and shorts, while reducing, but not totally neutralising, the overall level of exposure to the market (the universe in aggregate remains positively correlated to equities). This is a very heterogenous sector with variety of investment styles, investment philosophies, and overarching approach to portfolio construction (leverage, concentration, level of directionality, etc.) being employed, leading to a broader range of potential outcomes.
