Hedge fund managers get their research done quickly
with Radios' powerful applications:
- Stock picking
- Alpha generating strategies
- Equity long/short
The long/short equities style includes Investment
Strategies that trade long and short without any necessary
restriction on the degree of net long or short exposure they adopt.
Some strategies may have a variable or consistent net long or short
bias. They aim to profit from identifying stocks deemed to be under
or over-valued on an outright basis – an approach commonly known as
„stock picking“. Investment decisions are usually made within a
discretionary framework based on quantitative and qualitative
valuation techniques. Long/short equities strategies are often
characterised by a relatively low trading frequency. The performance
of these strategies is typically expected to show higher correlation
and beta to the markets traded than equity hedge strategies.
Volatility also tends to be higher than for equity hedge strategies.
The strategies aim to be return-enhancing, delivering most of the
upside of stock markets with less of the downside.
