Totus Alpha

Long Short Fund


The Totus Alpha Long Short Fund gains its exposure by investing in the Totus Alpha Fund (“Underlying Fund”) and cash. The underlying strategy concentrates on long short investing in Australia and developed market equities (primarily in the US).

The underlying strategy's investment process involves identifying medium to longer-term structural investment themes that are used to focus our research efforts. The team then performs extensive bottom-up research to identify securities that have concentrated exposure to these themes.

We focus on businesses with a demonstrated track record of profitability, high returns and strong cash flow generation for long investments. We balance these investments with short positions in lower quality businesses that are facing cyclical and/or structural headwinds, deteriorating earnings quality, and catalysts for share price underperformance.
