Bronte Amalthea Fund July 2016 Commentary

The Bronte Amalthea Fund is a global long/short fund targeting double digit returns over the long term, managed by a performance orientated firm with a process and portfolio that is genuinely different. Objectives include lowering the risk of permanent loss of capital and providing global diversification without the market/drawdown risks typical of long-only funds. A highly diversified short book substantially reduces risk and enables profits to be made in tough markets. The fund is an alternative to equity investing, and complement to most portfolios, and is typically an excellent diversifier which may lower overall portfolio risk.

For a long/short fund keeping up with such increases is unusual and not surprisingly our shorts proved a drag but were more than made up for by significant gains in key longs including Herbalife, Alphabet (nee Google) and Adidas.
