Fund objective
DB Platinum IV GAM Absolute Return Europe Equity (the “Fund”) is an open-ended UCITS compliant fund that seeks capital growth via a positive long-term return in both rising and falling financial markets. The Investment Manager of the Fund is GAM Investment Management (Switzerland) Ltd (“GAM”). The Fund invests (long and short) in liquid equities and equity-related securities of European companies. The investment philosophy is based on a market neutral portfolio, spread driven performance and long/short pair trading in the same sector. The Investment Manager’s strategy focuses on stock selection with a disciplined and systematic investment approach through a combination of quant screening and thorough qualitative analysis. The strategy focuses primarily on equity securities of publicly traded companies, and may also invest in debt securities and other liquid instruments including cash and money market instruments. The Investment Manager seeks to generate returns primarily from individual security selection ("alpha") as opposed to overall market exposure ("beta"). Derivative instruments (including both exchange-traded and over-the-counter derivatives, such as swaps, futures and options) may be used for investment and hedging purposes. Depending on market environments and subject to the investment restrictions, the Fund may, at the discretion of the Investment Manager, employ leverage in the construction of its portfolio. The Fund’s maximum expected level of leverage is 600% of the Fund’s NAV. The Fund's level of leverage may possibly be higher in a low market volatility environment.
