Lazard Asset Management (LAM) today announced the launch of the Lazard US Fundamental Alternative Fund.

The Fund, which is UCITS compliant, is a liquid and diversified portfolio primarily focused on US securities, with the flexibility to invest across the whole market cap spectrum. Utilising bottom-up stock selection, the Fund seeks to take long positions in equities of companies believed to have strong and/ or improving financial productivity and attractive valuations, and short positions in companies with deteriorating fundamentals, unattractive valuations, or other qualities warranting a short position.

The Fund will be managed in New York by portfolio managers Dmitri Batsev and Jerry Liu, who leverage a dedicated and highly experienced US equity investment team. The team, which is made up of 23 investment professionals, has an average of 18 years of investment experience and 12 years at LAM.

“In our view it is financial productivity that ultimately drives the valuation of companies.” said Dmitri Batsev, portfolio manager of the Lazard US Fundamental Alternative Fund. “We believe that forward-looking fundamental analysis is key to valuing these opportunities, both when stocks rise and when stocks fall.”

Jerry Liu said: “Expanding the US opportunity set to both longs and shorts allows us to create a differentiated portfolio of investments, seeking to provide investors with strong down-market protection, up-market participation, and lower volatility than the overall market.” The Fund is based on the existing Lazard Fundamental Long/Short strategy, which has delivered a +11.2% annualized net return compared to the HFRI Equity Hedge (Total) Index at +5.9% over the last three years. The strategy has generated these returns while realizing two-thirds of the volatility of the S&P 500 Index with a 53% correlation and only 8% of the downside.

LAM offers a range of equity, fixed-income, and alternative investment products worldwide. As of 30 September 2015, LAM and affiliated asset management companies in the Lazard Group managed $183 billion of client assets.
