Man GLG Asia Opportunities Fund
A long only, style agnostic, fundamentally driven strategy focused on capturing the turning points in earnings revisions to generate alpha.
At the core of Man GLG’s investment approach is relative earnings revisions, premised on the belief that earnings revisions are a more persistent and durable source of alpha than any other single factor in this region. As such, the investment team’s core focus is to capture turning points in companies that have high earnings per share revision potential over a forecast period of up to 12-18 months.
The team takes a bottom-up approach, leading to those stocks it believes demonstrate greater potential for movement, whether positive or negative, in their key profit drivers such as revenue, costs, margins, cashflows and ultimately, earnings per share.
The Fund’s portfolio is constructed to ensure favourable countries, industries or investment styles are included. It is not intended that the Fund will have a particular industry or sector focus, nor is its investment approach driven by style or market capitalisation. Instead, the focus is on positioning the Fund to benefit from strong and consistent capital appreciation in the medium- to long-term.
The resulting portfolio is a concentrated long-only strategy that invests in Asia ex-Japan companies across all market capitalisations, with a preference for mid-cap stocks. It can also invest in companies that derive a majority of revenues from that region. The portfolio is generally comprised of 35-45 stocks, selected from a universe of approximately 1200.
