TORONTO, Dec. 16 /CNW/ - Jim McGovern, Managing Director and CEO of Arrow
Hedge Partners Inc. of Toronto, Canada is pleased to announce the launch of
the Arrow Japan Long/Short Fund, which is now available for purchase.
The Arrow Japan Long/Short Fund is a long/short equity hedge fund focused
on generating absolute returns by investing in Japanese stocks. The Fund is
advised by Invicta Investment Management based in London, UK with a research
office in Tokyo, Japan. The portfolio is relatively concentrated with 70 to 90
positions held at any one time.
"We believe that investors who have exposure to Japan with a fund that
can actively manage market fluctuations should benefit over the next few
years. As such we are very excited that we are able to extend our investment
with Invicta Investment Management to offer a single manager absolute return
fund to our clients," Mark Purdy, Managing Director and head of Arrow's
Investment Management team explained.
"The equity long/short strategy is uniquely well positioned to benefit
from the macro economic and corporate changes in Japan. From a risk-reward
standpoint, Japan's deep, liquid markets provide a vital opportunity set. A
hedged approach can provide a portfolio with the necessary exposure on the
long side with respect to renewed domestic growth, as well as on the short
side with exposure to industries that fail to embrace corporate change. It
also explicitly manages currency risk, which can potentially dominate security
selection decisions if left unmanaged," Mr. Purdy concluded.
