CF Partners launches utilities, infrastructure and oil focused global equity hedge fund

Wednesday, March 27, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - CF Partners, the advisory, trading and investment firm, has announced that its new Long/Short Global Equity fund focusing on utilities, infrastructure and oil has delivered a return of net 6.44% for its investors in its first three months.

CFP Equity Fund targets a return of 15% per annum with volatility of less than 10%. The fund has completed its first three months of investing generating +0.38% in December, +3.53% in January and +2.42% in February with annualised volatility of around 5.9% and correlation of less than 0.18 to the Eurostoxx50. Current assets under management are $29 million.

The fund is specialized, managing a concentrated portfolio of 20-40 positions from within an investment universe comprised of around 150 equities. It draws on CF Partners’ breadth and depth of experience within the energy sector to combine in-depth fundamental analysis with short-term trading strategies to identify investment opportunities.

Alvero Ventosa, Chief Investment Officer at CF Partners commented: “We see tremendous investment opportunities created by the current structural shifts in the global energy market which are creating clear winners and losers and the best method of capturing this alpha is active long short management. Our focused approach and CF Partners’ deep understanding of the complexities of regulation that impact our investment universe, gives us a competitive advantage over generalist investors.”

Thomas Rassmuson and Jonathan Navon, Founding Partners of CF Partners added: “We at CF Partners strive to provide innovative investment solutions and risk management and are proud that we have become a trusted partner to many governments and the largest corporate clients. It is access to this collective expertise and experience within the energy sector that we can offer to institutional investors and we are excited to be delivering that opportunity through the launch of CFP Equity Fund.”
