Listed investment strategies

Over the past decade, WAM has developed several investment strategies in listed assets (equities and bonds), addressing the opportunities and risks of the green industrial revolution. These strategies have been tested by the family office via its long-term investment vehicle “REEF”. Subject to raising about €50m of seed capital for each strategy, they could be made available to professional investors as hedge funds or to the public as mutual or “UCITS” funds. This would contribute to the “democratization” of “impact investing” and “divest-invest” strategies. We thus welcome offers or leads to raise the required seed capital.

Below are some basic infos about these strategies:

SYSTEMATIC STRATEGY – LONG/SHORT – US LISTED EQUITIES AND ETF’S

The strategy uses a proprietary, long-biased, multiple time frame trend-following model with value investing inputs. The execution is fully automated and eliminates human error.

WGCI pursues a divest-invest strategy: it does not go long any ”The Carbon Underground 200” names, but may take short positions in them. The strategy is thus designed to do well in a global financial crisis caused by the bursting of the carbon bubble and other asset bubbles.

WEELS also pursues an impact investing strategy. It uses the shares in its portfolio to request corporate action to counter corrupt practices and waste of resources at annual meetings, and it engages in a dialogue with management to enhance share value. Last but not least it pursues a divest-invest strategy, excluding “The Carbon Underground 200” on the long side.
