Long/short equity funds: Swedish and international comparison

Long-Short_Equity_ReportThis research by Mikael Haglund, founder of Swiss research firm Altevo Research, highlights the outperformance of Swedish long/short equity funds in the bear market of June 2007 to December 2008. It shows managing the beta and alternative betas as the most important parameters to focus on during adverse market conditions, and for managers that do not possess the skill and internal processes to do so, there is expected  to be consolidation and closure.
