The Boston Partners Global Long/Short fund, run by US value equity manager Boston Partners, has been made available on Goldman Sachs’ Ucits-compliant platform Sicav.
The vehicle consists of a diversified equity fund that seeks long-term growth of capital while minimising exposure to equity market risk globally. It holds long positions in undervalued stocks and short positions in names identified as being overvalued.
The Boston Partners Global Long/Short fund is run by senior portfolio manager Christopher Hart and portfolio manager Joshua Jones.
Boston Partners’ stock picking relies on a bottom-up analysis of valuation, fundamental quality and business momentum combined to a proprietary quantitative-screening process.
“Boston Partners has nearly two decades of experience in long/short investing and significant investment capabilities in international markets. We are very pleased to partner with Goldman Sachs and to have the Boston Partners Global Long/Short fund featured on their platform,” Hart said.
Founded in 1995, Boston Partners currently managed $94.7bn (€80bn) as of 30 September 2017.
