After many years playing the role of Cinderella, European equities began to get net inflows in 2017. The asset class is amongst the least efficient global equity markets, with a higher proportion of active long-only managers outperforming indices than in other regions. Small and mid-cap stocks in Europe may exhibit even greater inefficiency, given little or no sell side analyst coverage, and limited buy side following. The AC Tiger Value Fund, which is available on Aquila Capital’s Associated Manager Platform, is a long/short AIF strategy mainly trading small and mid-cap stocks, which have outperformed the broad, large cap dominated, indices since 2009.

Alpha and asymmetry

The past eight years of rising markets have provided some tailwind for any net long strategy. But the fund’s Investment Advisor – Tiger Asset Management – is not a beta jockey and nor does it use leverage to enhance returns. When The Hedge Fund Journal met with the fund in June 2017, the gross exposure was at 84% and the net long exposure was at 35%. The strategy has outperformed the long only equity indices with low gross exposure, low net exposure, moderate volatility and low market correlation. The AC Tiger Value Fund has annualised at over 11% while maintaining volatility below 7%, as shown in Fig.1.
