For the second time in a row, the Credit Suisse (Lux) Small and Mid Cap Alpha Long/Short Fund has won HFM’s prestigious EuroHedge Absolute Ucits Award in the category European Equity (under USD 500 mn) – 1 Year. This award is given to alternative Ucits hedge funds that demonstrate excellence in risk-adjusted performance over the relevant period1, which in the case of the Credit Suisse (Lux) Small and Mid Cap Alpha Long/Short Fund came to an outstanding return of 19.13%, with a Sharpe ratio of 1.80.2 This win is further evidence of our comprehensive understanding and knowledge of the inefficient European small- and mid-cap market, especially as it is a repeat of last year’s award.
- There is no guarantee that losses can be avoided or that investment objectives will be achieved.
- The success of the product may be affected by general economic and market conditions, which may affect the level and volatility of the prices of financial instruments and their liquidity.
- The underlying portfolio may be insufficiently diversified, which may have an adverse impact on the value of shares in the fund.
- The fund may invest in currencies that are not the fund’s base currency (euro). Changes in exchange rates may therefore have an adverse impact on the value of shares in the fund.
