GAM has announced the launch of its new Systematic Global Equity Market Neutral fund, the group’s first quantitative equity strategy aimed at offering an uncorrelated return compared to a long-only equity portfolio.

The Ucits compliant fund will invest in a universe consisting of the 2500 most liquid stocks worldwide based on a methodology developed by the Cantab Investment team following GAM’s acquisition of Cantab in October this year.

Anthony Lawler, co-head of GAM Systematic comments on the launch: “Our global equity market neutral product benefits from the results of years of research and system development. The combination of diversification, performance and excellent risk management makes it a very attractive equity product for our clients, particularly in the current market environment.”
