Long Only Strategies

Lansdowne Developed Markets Long Only Fund

The Developed Markets Long Only Fund launched in October 2012 under the management of Peter Davies and Stuart Roden. The Fund, now managed by Peter Davies and Jonathon Regis, invests primarily in large and mid-cap equities in developed markets (with the ability to have up to 10% in emerging markets). The Fund will be relatively concentrated, typically holding c.25-50 positions with a maximum position size of 15% (at cost), while the maximum investment in any sector will typically be less than 35%. The market cap investment threshold for inclusion in the Fund is $500m.

A Cayman Islands Partnership structure is available for eligible UK and European tax-exempt investors and Lansdowne DMLO Davies Street LP is available for certain US benefit plan investors. We also offer an Irish domiciled ICAV, Lansdowne Developed Markets Long Only Fund.

Lansdowne European Long Only Fund

The European Long Only Fund was launched in January 2005. Daniel Avigad has had co-Portfolio Manager responsibilities from March 2013 and sole Portfolio Manager responsibilities since January 2014.

The Fund aims to invest primarily in the equity and equity-related securities of European companies which are identified as being undervalued and where it is believed that there is potential for both significant creation of value in the company and/or significant potential for revaluation of the equity. Equity exposure to European companies will normally be a minimum of 65% of net equity investments, but is typically expected to range between 80-100%.

The Fund cannot leverage or borrow, nor will it invest in any options, derivatives or CDS instruments.

Lansdowne Greater China Fund

The Greater China Fund was launched in January 2017 and is managed by Yang Wu. In July 2020 the Fund transitioned to a Long Only product.

The Fund invests primarily in Greater China stocks, including A, B, H shares and ADRs, driven by a bottom-up approach with a focus on the multi-decade transition in China’s economy, market and corporates. The Greater China Region includes Mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

The Fund will be relatively concentrated, typically holding c.15-20 positions with a maximum position size of 15% (at cost). The Fund’s exposure to companies established n or which have significant business exposure to the Greater China Region is expected to be a minimum of 80 percent of equity investments.
