European and Asian Equity Funds

Managed by Amber Capital Italia SGR, the newly launched UCITS Amber Italia Equity Fund seeks to “return consistent absolute returns by investing on a long/short basis primarily in European equities, with a focus on Italian investments. The fund is using a fundamental value and bottom-up approach. The investment strategies employed may encompass, among other things, any or all of the following strategies: directional long or short positions with or without a catalyst; long/short equity pairs with or without a catalyst; capital structure arbitrage; risk arbitrage; share class arbitrage; company holding discounts; and relative- and fundamental-value.”

Joseph Oughourlian, founder of Amber Capital Group and Amber Capital Italia SGR, said he was “very proud of the launch of the Amber Equity Fund as it further strengthens our commitment to Italy, a country in which we strongly believe and where we have been present for many years. We are also confident that transforming the Amber Italia Equity fund into a UCITS fund will widen our investor base.”
