Investment Strategy

The Investment approach is based on a mix of fundamentals and quantitative techniques. The global universe of stocks is divided into four groups: USA, Europe, Asia ex Japan, and Japan. In each geographic group, the Fund will only invest in major, liquid exchanges. In each group AL Capital selects approximately 25 stocks, based on in-depth fundamental research, as well as quantitative analysis (AL Capital have developed a proprietary quantitative screening process that produces a ranking of stocks according to attractiveness in terms of potential upside. This process is run frequently, separately for the four regions). The team will draw upon research done by its global team. Capital allocation to each of the four groups is dynamically managed, based on the team’s outlook for the respective regions, informed by both macro and market parameters.

The investments will be done in the native currency of each stock exchange, and the resulting currency exposure is dynamically managed through the application of currency hedges, again based on the team’s outlook for the likely direction of future exchange rate movements. Finally, the team may from time to time apply derivatives to hedge overall stock market risk, if deemed appropriate. The combined portfolio is reviewed, discussed and, if necessary, updated in the weekly portfolio review meeting, with a view to target regional allocation, currency exposure, risk parameters, stock parameters, and the market and macro environment.
