Trias L/S Fund celebrates its second anniversary – performance since inception at +58.2%

Wednesday, May 07, 2014
Opalesque Industry Update - Entrepreneur Partners AG, a FINMA-regulated asset manager domiciled in Zurich, is celebrating the second anniversary of its proprietary fund Trias L/S Fund. Since inception the value of fund units has increased by 58.2%, clearly outperforming long-only equity indices and its peers in the fund area. The favorable fund structure with daily liquidity at the net asset value (NAV) and CHF and EUR asset classes also made a contribution to growing fund assets.

Trias L/S Fund invests in companies listed in Germany, Austria and Switzerland (DACH). This region is home to a large array of under-researched companies with considerable performance potential. A key factor of the fund’s strategy is in-depth analysis and ongoing management contact, which are conducted by the fund manager personally. Clear positioning according to the expected development on the markets is also part of the portfolio management process.

Following a very successful year in 2013 (performance +33.7%), Trias L/S Fund has upheld this suc-cess with a positive start to 2014 (as at April 30, 2014: +10.0%), generating significantly greater value for investors than the leading equity indices (SMI +3.3%, MDAX -3.0%, ATX -0.8%). The top-notch performance has attracted new investors, which has helped propel the fund past the mark of CHF 50 million in assets under management.

Fund manager Kilian Kentrup is confident in his strategy: “In the DACH region there are an unbelieva-ble number of exciting small and mid-cap companies, which receive little or no attention. Sound analy-sis and regular contact with management have helped me in the past to find attractive opportunities and generate added returns for investors.” Performance drivers over the past few months include companies like Aareal Bank, Drillisch, SAF Holland, Palfinger, Leonteq and U-Blox. Currently German construction software provider RIB Software, Austrian semi-conductor manufacturer AMS and the Swiss media company Publigroupe all stand out as favorites.
