Lombard Odier, a Geneva-based wealth manager, has added the PrivilEdge – Janus Henderson Octanis Fund to its ‘PrivilEdge’ open architecture platform.

This gives investors access to a focused, big cap fundamental equities long/short strategy with a focus on Europe.

The fund’s portfolio consists of 20 to 40 Core and Tactical, long, and short positions, with an emphasis on large and mega-cap firms in developed markets.

It is co-managed by Ben Wallace and Luke Newman.

The Core allocation, supported by a bottom-up stock selection methodology, aims to generate returns over a long-time horizon, whilst the Tactical allocation aims to profit from short-term market volatility and technical opportunities.

The Fund aims to safeguard investors against equity market declines while positioning for market potential through the active management of gross and net exposure.
