The MW Japan Market Neutral Strategy seeks to provide investors with above average absolute returns with low net market exposure and low factor risk, primarily through investing and trading in Japanese equities and equity-related instruments.
The portfolio comprises high conviction, fundamentally based positions focused on mis-priced growth and value situations combined with tactical alpha extraction tools, driven by the output of contributors to Japan TOPS.
Alpha generation is driven primarily by stock selection focused on monetising the re-pricing potential of changes in company fundamentals. The investment team fosters an analytical edge in the sectors of the economy most likely to see rising dispersion and leverages an information edge from access to the Marshall Wace TOPS investment platform.
