130/30 Guide

 

Summary

There is a great deal of interest in these products, and opinion spans the range from positive to negative. The short answer is that until 130/30 funds have built a meaningful track record these opinions must be treated as subjective.

Investors considering one of these products will also want to know that the provider has in place the architecture, the research capabilities and, essentially, the shorting skills to make them work.

The fact is that with many long-only funds producing lacklustre returns, and even hedge funds sliding down the other side of the parabola, there is a vacuum looking for a market-neutral solution to fill it. Products offering long/short strategies may – just - prove to be that solution.
