Verno Capital takes a fundamental, bottom-up investment approach across all asset classes using rigorous analysis in the form of on-the-ground interaction with company management teams, focusing on numerous factors including their strategic objectives, corporate governance standards, and investment plans. This, combined with Verno’s proprietary financial modelling, aims to achieve superior risk-weighted returns across all market conditions.
Verno Capital Growth Fund
Verno Capital Growth Fund (“VCGF”) is an actively managed long-only fund launched in June 2011. VCGF employs a fundamental, bottom-up value strategy, which seeks to outperform the RTS Index by generating alpha through rigorous stock selection. It is a high conviction, highly liquid, concentrated portfolio and is benchmark and sector agnostic and invests across all market capitalisations with a bias towards large- and mid-caps.
Verno Russia Fund
Verno Russia Fund (“VRF”) is a long-biased, multi-discipline hedge fund launched in January 2010. VRF seeks low correlation through absolute return opportunities created by growth and change, as well as market inefficiencies in Russia and the FSU. In addition to the fundamental, bottom-up approach applied to both funds, VRF also utilises special situations and trading to generate alpha, and hedging to mitigate volatility and manage exposure.
