Electus Quarterly Strategy Note April 2017

In July 2016, we launched our Electus Long/Short Equity Hedge Fund. As hedge funds have now become regulated investment vehicles in South Africa, we believe it is important for investors to build up an understanding of these vehicles as we expect rapid growth in hedge funds in the years ahead. In the Quarterly Strategy Note we cover the following:

  • A brief overview of the South African Hedge Fund Industry and Regulatory Environment
  • An introduction into the structure of hedge funds
  • The "Case for Short Selling" and why it is relevant in a South African context
  • Conclusion on why hedge funds can deliver better risk adjusted returns
  • A brief Electus Fund Management Overview
