Heptagon Capital brings two Global Equity Strategies to UCITS Investors

Monday, February 24, 2014
Opalesque Industry Update - Heptagon Capital, the London-based investment management firm with $8.4bn assets under management, has just launched two new Global Equity funds on its Irish UCITS platform: the Oppenheimer Global Focus Equity Fund and the Kopernik Global All-Cap Equity Fund. This takes the number of funds on Heptagon’s $2.8bn AUM UCITS platform to five.

The Oppenheimer Global Focus Equity strategy is now available to professional UCITS investors. The strategy combines a thematic approach to idea generation with fundamental company analysis. Randall (Randy) Dishmon, the portfolio manager based in New York, started the strategy in October 2007. He looks for durable businesses, regardless of where they are located, with sustainable structural tailwinds and good economics. Entry points are critical; Randy seeks to buy when there is a large gap between market price and what the company is worth to an informed buyer. The investment horizon of 3-5 years is sufficiently long to allow real value to materialize. Although this is a high-conviction, actively-managed, benchmark-agnostic strategy (with an ‘Active Share’ of 96%), its risk profile is limited by the portfolio manager’s focus on price. Randy is an employee of OFI Global Asset Management, a wholly owned subsidiary of OppenheimerFunds, Inc.

The other fund that was launched is the actively managed Kopernik Global All-Cap Equity Fund, and its investment portfolio is being managed by Dave Iben of Kopernik Global Investors, LLC in Tampa, Florida. The strategy pursues a truly global, bottom-up, research driven, fundamental evaluation approach that focusses on identifying market inefficiencies through independent analysis. Dave and his team look for undervalued and unloved stocks that will significantly reward the long term, patient investor, who truly understands a company’s business, and where more normal, stable valuations for a business will eventually be achieved.

Dave’s historical comparable strategy performance has achieved an annualised return of 9% from March 2006 to March 2012, compared to 2.8% for the MSCI All Country World Equity Index. Historically, his funds have repeatedly dominated Bloomberg Markets Rankings, having taken three of the top four spots in 2011.
