Boston Partners Unveils Global Long/Short Equity UCITS Fund

Nov 30 2017 | 10:52pm ET

Value investing specialist Boston Partners has debuted an UCITS-compliant version of its flagship long/short equity fund on Goldman Sach’s liquid alternatives platform. 

The new fund mirrors the company’s award-winning Boston Partners Long/Short Equity Fund, according to an article in Citywire, which takes long positions in undervalued stocks and short positions in those believed to be overvalued.

The company’s London office helps to support over $15 billion in sub-advised UCITS assets under management, Boston Partners said in a statement, as well as $2.2 billion in separately managed accounts across nine Europe-based institutional clients.

Founded in 1995, Boston Partners is focused on investing in companies with attractive value characteristics, strong business fundamentals, and catalysts for positive change. The firm currently manages $94.7 billion as of 30 September 2017 across a range of equity-focused investment products including value, long/short, small/microcap, and volatility harvesting.
