RAM Active Investments has launched its RAM (Lux) Systematic Funds – Long/Short Global Equities fund as a daily-dealing UCITS funds available in United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium, Germany, Denmark, The Netherlands, Finland, Austria, France, Luxembourg, Sweden and Norway.

The new fund’s strategy will look to capture market inefficiencies across the developed markets’ universe of more than 6,000 stocks through a quantitative model-driven fundamental and behavioral based stock selection process, the company said.
The aim is to produce consistent risk-adjusted returns with a diversified portfolio of more than 800 stocks at a given time with no correlation to the underlying market – defined as the MSCI World index.
RAM AI has some US$776m in AUM in existing beta-neutral long/short strategies as of 31 December 2016.
Thomas de Saint-Seine said: “The RAM Long/Short Global strategy will focus purely on stock selection, with the objective of delivering strong, risk-adjusted returns, independent of equity markets evolution. In an environment of increased uncertainty and market volatility, stock selection requires a disciplined approach. Our beta neutral and actively-managed strategy mitigates against market exposure and downside risk.”
