Reyl A.M. launches two UCITS IV long/short funds

Monday, February 13, 2012
Opalesque Industry Update - Reyl Asset Management today launches two new UCITS IV compliant long/short funds, the Reyl Long/Short European Equities fund and the Reyl Long/Short Emerging Markets Equities fund, to further enhance its long/short offering.

The two new funds will look to build on the success of Reyl Asset Management’s existing directional and long/short equity funds, while providing a good fit with the company’s existing product range offered since 2004.

The Reyl Long/Short European Equities fund and the Reyl Long/Short Emerging Markets Equities fund both follow the successful stock-picking investment model Reyl designed for its Reyl European Equities fund (which has been recognised with several Lipper Awards), combining fundamental value and defensive strategies with GARP/momentum strategies.

The stability of the alpha generation comes from an optimal allocation of these long-term strategies within the final portfolio. The systematic stock-picking is applied to an extensive universe of companies, with no intrinsic bias as to market capitalisation, sector or country, which allows a wide diversification of investment lines and styles. The funds’ long exposure is permanently neutralised through short positions in both index futures, for the most part, and individual lines, from two short stock-picking strategies.

Both funds comply with the new European UCITS IV directives, providing investors with greater security with regards to transparency, portfolio risk management, ease of distribution, segregation of assets and minimisation of counterparty risk.

Thomas de Saint-Seine, Chief Executive Officer of Reyl Asset Management, commented:
“In today’s particularly volatile environment, we wanted to develop new investment vehicles aiming at generating performance while preserving investors’ capital. Our two new funds reflect this double objective; they take their alpha engine from our traditional equity funds, while borrowing from our existing long/short product, the Reyl Absolute Return fund, their hedging process to reduce volatility.”
