Investment Objective The investment objective is to obtain uncorrelated returns (with the equity indices) taking advantage of opportunities in Brazilian equity market. The manager focuses on 100 listed companies, including all most liquid stocks of the Bovespa Index and also some middle and small caps with very compelling valuation. Portfolio construction follows a very disciplined set of parameters and limits (per position, per sector). Alpha generation is supposed to be the biggest contributor for the fund P&L. Gross exposure may be as high as 200% NAV but more typically lies between 120 – 160% NAV.Net exposure may lie between -20%/+40% NAV but more typically lies between +10/+20% NAV. The short book is a combination of individual stocks shorts and index futures.
Investment Process The investment process is purely fundamental-driven and the manager has a deep understanding of all companies within the investable universe. Idea generation combines a top-down macro analysis and a bottom-up micro analysis coming from the equity team. Besides the portfolio manager, three more analysts make part of the research process; each professional covers a limited group of sectors. All investment professionals are compensated on the basis of the fund performance.
Risk Management Risk management is one of the key pillars of the fund. The basis for risk management is diversification among different positions and sectors. Great emphasis is given to liquidity risk given the cyclical nature of emerging markets. Currency risk is fully hedged. There is a pre-defined stop loss for each type of operation that takes into consideration the individual liquidity and volatility characteristics of each participating stock. The total risk budget of the fund, as defined as the sum of all stops cannot surpass 12%. In addition, the fund has a limit of 15% of max gross exposure on small caps, stocks with less than BRL 5mm of ADTV.
