Across Q1 the fund generated approximately 600+bps of gross alpha on an average daily beta of 0.02 to MSCI World (which fell 21.4% across the period), with the fund finishing the quarter up 5.6%. Performance was broad-based at sector level, driven by a large subset of pair trades across c. 160 names with standout contributors to returns within Aerospace & Defence, Industrial Machinery, Automobile Manufacturers and Household Products. Most notably, in March the gross exposure was cut significantly to ensure coherence with the portfolio’s volatility targets, from a Q1 high in February of 355% to approximately 135%. There was limited turn-over in the portfolio via the gross reduction with positions trimmed across the book.
