Altegris Offers Long/Short Equity Mutual Fund

May 23 2012 | 11:44am ET

Altegris Advisors has launched a mutual fund of hedge fund managers, offering retail investors access to a long/short equity strategy.

The new Altegris Equity Long Short Fund "seeks to meet the growing demand for accessible and trusted alternative investments by leveraging our history in alternative investments," CEO Jon Sundt said. The new fund features "premier" long/short managers with proprietary sub-strategies including diversified, financials and small-caps.

"We believe many long/short funds are managed by long-only managers who've only recently started shorting," Sundt said. "We were methodical in our preparation for launching this Fund. We launched this Fund only after we had identified and selected what in our opinion are best of breed managers with verifiable long and short strategy track records. The managers employed by the Altegris Equity Long Short Fund have experience short selling selected stocks, as opposed to simply hedging via broad market indices."
