Summary

Trium Capital and Asiya Investments are pleased to announce their partnership to launch the Asiya Emerging Asia Fund in Autumn 2015 on the Trium UCITS Platform.

Founded in 2005, Asiya is an asset management firm with assets of more than US$1billion invested in the public and private markets of emerging Asia, with more than US$750million managed in quantitative Asian equity strategies. The firm has offices in Hong Kong and Kuwait, with Hong Kong being the base for its investment professionals. The fund, which will be seeded with US$25million, will be a long/short equity fund investing in Asia’s emerging markets. The portfolio management team will employ a proprietarily-developed, quantitatively-driven investment approach to manage the fund. The fund will target a net market exposure of approximately 30%.

The Trium UCITS Platform offers a distribution-led, one-stop independent platform for investment managers to set up Irish-domiciled funds. Integrated with Trium’s in-house distribution capabilities and deep knowledge of the UCITS market, it offers one of the most comprehensive UCITS packages in the industry. The Asiya Emerging Asia Fund will be the second fund on the platform, after Blackwall Capital which launched late in 2014.

Andrew Collins, Head of UCITS at Trium Capital, says:
“We are delighted to partner with Asiya to deliver a UCITS version of their Asia-focused quantitative equity flagship product, as it enables us to bring a top tier name in Asian equity strategies to Europe. We look forward to working with Asiya’s highly experienced team and are very positive on the potential for the Asiya Emerging Asia Fund.”

Ahmad Al-Hamad, CEO of Asiya Investments, says:
“We look forward to offering our investment expertise and products to European investors. Since inception, Asiya has focused exclusively on investing in the emerging economies of Asia, capitalizing on the region’s growth and the expansion of its capital markets. Our experienced team has developed robust research and investment processes that have consistently generated alpha for our clients. We chose Trium to launch our UCITS umbrella as we believe their team’s depth, experience and technical knowledge of both UCITS and the European market offer us the greatest potential for success.”

Trium Capital launches the Trium Multi-Strategy Fund

Trium Capital has this month launched the Trium Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund.

11 June 2015

Trium Capital has this month launched the Trium Multi-Strategy Hedge Fund. Seeded by Trium Capital, the Fund will be run by a team headed by James Jarvis, who joined the firm from PAAMCO’s Portfolio Management team.

The team has been built from the ground up to give investors a diversified portfolio constructed across both liquid discretionary and quantitative strategies. It initially consists of four lowly correlated books run by experienced investment specialists. The discretionary portion includes a fundamental long/short equity strategy and a special situations / opportunistic equity-biased book, whilst on the quantitative side there is a systematic macro and a statistical arbitrage strategy.

The Trium Multi-Strategy Fund, by applying fees to the overall Fund performance rather than to individual underlying books, provides an effective solution to the problem of performance fee netting thus closely aligning the interests of manager and investor.

James Jarvis, Head of Trium Multi-Strategy, said:
“Starting with a blank sheet of paper has allowed us to implement an investor-friendly approach to multi-strategy. By leveraging the wider Trium group infrastructure we have been able put together a highly experienced and complementary team with independent risk oversight.”

Gareth James, CEO of Trium Capital, said:
“Trium Multi-Strategy offers something relatively rare by providing exposure to a diverse range of hedge fund strategies, but with a single performance fee that delivers real netting benefits. We have built the fund from the ground up to meet specific risk objectives.”

Trium Multi-Strategy Team

James Jarvis will be joined by:

  • Stephen Iklé who will run the fundamental long/short equity strategy. Iklé previously worked as a Partner at Lancaster Investment Management and his experience also includes tenures at Fidelity and Putnam.
  • Randeep Grewal who will run the discretionary special situations / opportunistic equity-focused strategy and was most recently a Senior Portfolio Manager at Thames River / F&C Asset Management. Grewal was previously a member of the European long/short equity team at Tudor Investment Corp for over ten years.
  • Larry Lau who will run the systematic macro strategy and was most recently Head of Managed Futures at LMR. Lau previously worked as the Head of Systematic Macro at Aspect Capital.
  • Chris Howland who will run the statistical arbitrage strategy and most recently ran his own hedge fund, Vanora, which operated on an exclusive basis for a large US institutional investor. Howland has also been the Head of French Equity Trading at UBS and the Head of UK Equity Trading at Morgan Stanley.
  • Andrea Ash who is consulting across various aspects of the hedge fund including PM evaluation, portfolio construction and risk management. Ash was most recently the Head of Trading Strategies at Pioneer, an institutional Fund of Hedge Funds.

11 February 2015

London based Trium Capital today announces the launch of its Irish UCITS Platform, and its first sub-fund, the Trium Blackwall Europe L/S Fund.

The Trium UCITS Platform offers alternative fund managers a one-stop distribution led solution to establish and operate UCITS funds.

The Trium Blackwall Europe L/S Fund, is a fundamental European equity long/short fund. The advisor, Swiss based Blackwall Capital, is headed by Thomas Karlovits, the former Head of European Equity Research at Kepler Cheuvreux.

The fund invests in a concentrated portfolio of mostly mid-sized, European, fundamentally mispriced stocks and has an investment horizon of 3-5 years. The investment philosophy is based on investing in, well understood, deeply researched value stocks within a robust risk management framework, and with the aim to generate profit with every single investment. Unconventional thinking is key to achieving superior returns.

Gareth James, CEO of Trium Capital, says:

“Our distribution-led model for UCITS is optimized by having a central sales team raising assets for a menu of exceptional funds. By combining this with a full service infrastructure to structure and operate UCITS, our platform represents a compelling proposition for fund managers looking to tap UCITS investors.”

Andrew Collins, Head of UCITS at Trium Capital, says:

“We are excited to have a manager of the calibre of Blackwall joining us as our first offering. There has been a surge in investor interest in alternative UCITS and we feel the Trium Blackwall Europe L/S Fund is well positioned to benefit from this trend.”

Thomas Karlovits, CEO of Blackwall Capital, says:

“We are delighted to be partnering with Trium on the launch of the fund and feel Investors will immediately benefit from the robust infrastructure offered by Trium, while it enables us to focus on the investment process.

“We will build on two decades of experience in drilling deep into mid-sized European companies and profit from opportunities in this under-researched segment of the market.   The current market shifts will offer ample opportunities for a carefully managed long-short equity fund in a regulated UCITS format.”
