FINalternatives- London-based VCM Fund Management is prepping a trio of hedge funds to invest in alternative energy, macro futures and emerging hedge fund managers.
The firm next month will launch two hedge funds in partnership with K2 Capital, the alternative energy hedge fund shop founded by former Vantage Derivatives head trader Andrew Swaine. First up, the firm will offer the VCM K2 Alternative Energy Segregated Portfolio, a thematic, global equity long/short and derivatives trading strategy investing in companies positively affected by climate change with a specific focus on the energy sector. It uses a bottom-up approach to stock selection focusing on value companies in the long book, with an emphasis on large cap stocks.
“The portfolio’s large cap bias naturally creates a low volatility, which is further enhanced through protective hedging,” said the firm.
