Montlake Skyline Ucits fund returns 20.5 per cent in first year

RELATED TOPICS​

The Skyline Ucits Fund has completed a successful first year recording a return of 20.5 per cent, placing the fund at the top of its peer group and in the top one per cent of all alternative Ucits funds.

The emerging markets long/short fund has seen significant inflows, notably in the past quarter, and AuM now stands at USD56m.

Challenging market conditions have led to a contraction in the overall EM L/S Ucits asset class, such that the fund has a 20 per cent+ market share. The team expects further share gains reflecting a shift away from actively managed benchmarked products towards an exposure managed approach to emerging markets investing.
 
Skyline Capital Management has a differentiated approach to investing in emerging markets.

Geoff Bamber (pictured), chief investment officer, says: “Our funds invest in high quality companies listed in or substantially exposed to emerging markets. Our process of focussing only on companies we can understand with clearly identifiable earnings drivers is a source of excess return. Our simple process of combining bottom-up analysis to generate long and short ideas with a proprietary top-down risk management framework will, we believe, continue to deliver attractive through-cycle returns for our investors.”
 
The fund is hosted on the MontLake Ucits Platform.
