Hedge Funds

Our global hedge funds team allocates capital to developed and emerging markets through strategies that include a mix of bottom-up investment strategies and macro global themes.

Our strong track-record is driven by a robust investment process, executed by an expert investment team. Our senior portfolio managers have an average of approximately 25 years of experience in their respective strategies. We place great emphasis on risk management, liquidity and alpha generation, which is facilitated through the close communication of the Investment Committee, the CEO of our Asset Management division and the Chief Risk Officer based in New York.

Global Emerging Markets and Macro Strategy (“GEMM”)
Launched in 2009, GEMM is our multiple Euro Hedge Award winning integrated flagship strategy that offers global macro investors a unique combination of strategies, in both the developed and emerging markets, via six strategies; EM Rates & FX, DM Rates & FX, EM Equities, DM Equities, Cross Asset and Global Securitized Products.

Given our local presence throughout Latin America and the experience of our 30 investment professionals across in UK, US and Brazil, we can invest in a number of difficult-to-access markets and do so in a way that typically leads to a low correlation with other macro funds. It employs a dynamic capital allocation model where capital moves across the strategies, based on market opportunities, to where the team sees the most compelling risk/reward profiles. This approach has helped us achieve positive returns for our investors through different market cycles and adds important diversification benefits.

Equity Volatility Strategy
GDO provides our clients with specific exposure to our relative value investment approach focusing on equity derivatives as an asset class. We launched the strategy in 2011 within GEMM. Following continued investor demand, and our team’s ability to successfully manage complex risk across market cycles, we launched GDO as a standalone vehicle in 2017.

GDO trades volatility, dividends and correlation, actively looking for opportunities in liquid markets across Europe, North America and Asia, both at the index and single stock level. Our investment approach is designed to seek performance in all conditions, with a preference for volatile markets. Our risk management and investment processes underpin the expertise of the investment team.

Rates Strategy
Launched in 2011, the Rates strategy seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation using a variety of highly liquid sovereign interest rate strategies, while emphasizing capital preservation and diversification. The strategy is US-focused but allocates opportunistically across G-10 markets, seeking to profit from deviations in short-term technical convergences and divergences.

Absoluto Global Strategy
Launched in 2015, the Absoluto Global strategy applies our differentiated capabilities and investing approach to our equities franchise, Absoluto. Similar to our LatAm strategy, we employ a bottom-up philosophy, seeking to invest in high-quality companies with best-in-class management teams, preferring compounders with strong earnings, aiming for sustainable and idiosyncratic revenue growth with the objective of driving outsized earnings and free cash-flow generation and growth.
