U.K.–based Montanaro Fund Managers today launched its first hedge fund, the Montanaro Absolute Return Fund, with EUR10 million (US$13.2 million) in assets. The Irish Stock Exchange-listed vehicle is an equity long/short fund that will invest in European small-cap companies and is aimed at retail investors.

Riitta Hujanen, fund manager, said the new offering employs bottom-up analysis of European small-cap stocks with a futures-based hedging overlay component, which is not focused on individual stocks but on European equity futures market indices.
