True diversification and consistent returns from a fund with a low correlation to equity market returns

At a Glance

The Ellerston Australian Market Neutral Fund harnesses a unique investment process to produce consistent returns over time regardless of market conditions. The strategy is designed to help reduce or eliminate the extreme highs and lows that so often characterise sharemarket investments, controlling risk and providing more stable returns over time.

Our team quantitatively screens and analyses stocks in our investment universe, identifying pairs of securities that have exhibited a historical long term relationship and that have become temporarily dislocated, causing a relative mispricing.

Where we expect the longer term relationship to prevail, and taking into account our fundamental value of both securities, we can execute a pair trade (relative value).

We also look to take advantage of special situations, including share recapitalisations, mergers, takeovers, restructures, security conversions, placements, IPOs, sell downs and share buybacks. These positions are expected to generate profit in both rising and falling equity markets and in our assessment with a high probability of positive returns and low probability of capital loss.

We favour liquid securities to minimise market impact during trading.
