Ironbark Asset Management (‘Ironbark’) is pleased to announce a partnership with Apis Capital Advisors (‘Apis’) and Fulcrum Asset Management (‘Fulcrum’). The partnership marks the launch of the Apis Global Long/Short Fund and the Fulcrum Diversified Investments Fund (the ‘Funds’) to the Australian market.
Alex Donald, Head of Funds Management at Ironbark comments, “Alternatives have long played a critical role in investors’ portfolios delivering diversification of returns while mitigating downside risk. We recognise the inherent demand for Alternatives products that are both cost-competitive and highly liquid, hence we are delighted to introduce two Funds that meet that criteria.”
Apis, based in New York, is a highly experienced global stock picker with a successful 15-year track record. The strategy of the Apis Global Long/Short Fund employs a fundamental, bottom-up research process and focuses on globally oriented industries.
Fulcrum is an established manager with a core focus on global, multi-asset investing, located in London. With favourable institutional ratings, the strategy behind the Fulcrum Diversified Investments Fund is grounded in fundamental and behavioural research to formulate core macro themes.
“Ironbark aims to deliver best-in-class investment solutions and is committed to providing high-quality capabilities in the Alternatives space for investors. We’re looking forward to welcoming Apis and Fulcrum to our suite of Alternatives.” Donald continues.
The anticipated launch for the respective funds will be on or around 1 October for the Apis Global Long/Short Fund and 2 November for the Fulcrum Diversified Investments Fund.
