GLG European Mid-Cap Equity

The GLG European Mid-Cap Equity strategy aims to generate positive returns through long and short investments in European mid-cap equities.

Disciplined investment process which aims to capitalise on information and analytical advantages and generate alpha opportunities from what the team believes to be an under-researched European mid-caps sector


The strategy seeks to provide investors with an attractive risk-adjusted total return, primarily through investments in companies with a market capitalisation of between EUR 500 million and EUR 10 billion+.

The portfolio managers, supported by a dedicated analyst, employ an in-depth investment research process which is driven by an extensive company management meetings programme, a proprietary analytical process and a life-cycle view of companies.

Through the utilisation of proprietary screening, research and valuation techniques the team aims to identify opportunities where the assessment of a company and its stock value differs from the market perception of the company and its stock price.

The portfolio is then constructed from a bottom-up perspective as the managers believe there is strong evidence to suggest that in mid-cap stocks, the primary sources of returns are stock specific, idiosyncratic factors rather than top-down macroeconomic, sector or country specific factors.

Important Information

One should carefully consider the risks associated with investing, whether the strategy suits your investment requirements and whether you have sufficient resources to bear any losses which may result from an investment:

Investment Objective Risk - There is no guarantee that the Strategy will achieve its investment objective.

Market Risk - The Strategy is subject to normal market fluctuations and the risks associated with investing in international securities markets and therefore the value of your investment and the income from it may rise as well as fall and you may not get back the amount originally invested.

Counterparty Risk - The Strategy will be exposed to credit risk on counterparties with which it trades in relation to on-exchange traded instruments such as futures and options and where applicable, ‘over-the- counter’("OTC","non-exchange") transactions. OTC instruments may also be less liquid and are not afforded the same protections that may apply to participants trading instruments on an organised exchange.

Currency Risk - The value of investments designated in another currency may rise and fall due to exchange rate fluctuations. Adverse movements in currency exchange rates may result in a decrease in return and a loss of capital. It may not be possible or practicable to successfully hedge against the currency risk exposure in all circumstances.

Liquidity Risk - The Strategy may make investments or hold trading positions in markets that are volatile and which may become illiquid. Timely and cost efficient sale of trading positions can be impaired by decreased trading volume and/or increased price volatility..

Financial Derivatives - The Strategy will invest financial derivative instruments ("FDI") (instruments whose prices are dependent on one or more underlying asset) to achieve its investment objective. The use of FDI involves additional risks such as high sensitivity to price movements of the asset on which it is based. The extensive use of FDI may significantly multiply the gains or losses.

Leverage - The Strategy's use of FDI may result in increased leverage which may lead to significant losses.

Single Region/Country Risk - The Strategy is a specialist country-specific Strategy or focuses on a particular geographic region, the investment carries greater risk than a more internationally diversified portfolio.
