Elif Aktug

Fund Manager,

Agora Pictet Asset Management

Geneva

Elif Aktug is the lead fund manager of Pictet Asset Management’s Agora, a European equity market neutral strategy. Since the strategy was launched in 2011, its assets have grown to $2.3 billion. In recognition of its strong track record, Agora has received multiple awards. For example, the $1.4 billion PTR-Agora, the 2014-launched UCITS vehicle of the strategy, is a multiple winner of The Hedge Fund Journal’s best performing fund in the equity market neutral category. Agora’s success stems from the team’s disciplined approach to risk management. For instance, in a two-year period in which European stocks were moving more or less in lockstep, the team pursued a cautious approach to deploying capital. More recently, though, the fund has raised its gross exposure and increased its allocation to investment strategies that benefit from the ongoing European recovery, buoyed by what it sees as Europe’s improved economic and political stability.

Pierre Andurand

Chief Investment Officer

Andurand Capital

London, Malta, New York

While many commodity funds have closed down, Pierre Andurand has maintained strong performance both at Bluegold and at Andurand Capital, which was launched in 2013, and let former Bluegold investors carry over their personal high-water marks. The firm has grown assets to $1.1 billion as of November 2017. The liquid Andurand Commodity Fund strategy has profited mainly from directional trading, such as going short oil in late 2014 and going long of oil in 2016. It has also profited from relative value trades, for instance spreads between Brent Crude and West Texas oil in 2013. Andurand has in 2017 launched an equity strategy, the Andurand Commodity Equity Fund, and a UCITS fund.
