Seahawk employs a fundamental approach to seek out individual long and short opportunities. The fund invests in equities as well as secured and unsecured fixed income instruments opportunistically. The fund aims at long term capital appreciation with a strong focus on risk management.
The fund will invest in the above segments of energy and transportation as well as related and other industries. The fund will use low correlations between the sectors and the broader market to provide a balanced exposure. The fund will take long and short positions in equity instruments and derivatives and be either net long or net short at any one time. Overall the fund is aiming at a balanced portfolio exposure with an average equity market beta of between +0.25 to +0.65.
Within the fund a combined top-down bottom-up strategy is implemented. At first the attractiveness of the individual focus sectors and subsectors is assessed and the fund’s sector exposure is determined. Subsequently, a fundamental individual security analysis leads to the individual portfolio positioning.
