- The ability to identify compelling investments – both long and short; and
- A commitment to maintaining a well-hedged, protected portfolio.
Vantage’s commitment to hedging helps insulate the portfolio from fluctuations in the broader market and underlying sectors. When properly implemented, hedges isolate stock-specific opportunities while minimizing the potential impact of unforeseeable events in the market.
