Four launches multi-strategy capability


Four Capital Partners has expanded its business with the addition of a multi-strategy capability.

Four has appointed Michael Pinggera to head the multi-strategy team and he will be joined immediately by former colleague Paul Zoltowski (client relationship manager). They will be joined by Johan Badenhorst who will focus on trading and risk management.
Pinggera joins from Insight where he was head of multi-asset group. Zoltowski brings over 20 years of client experience gained at institutions including Coutts, Merrill Lynch and Credit Suisse. Badenhorst joins the firm from JO Hambro.
The team will launch its first fund on 2 January. The portfolio will be a diversified growth strategy, with embedded downside protections delivered in a transparent, liquid and low cost fund. Four will launch a new sub fund on its existing OEIC structure which will be Ucits IV compliant.
Investments will be made in five strategies that provide directional and non directional exposure. The fund will actively allocate to eight regional and country equity indices to gain directional exposure and to four non-directional or low beta investment themes providing exposure to active alpha, emerging markets, equity alternatives and real assets.
The fund will make use of group active strategies, where deemed appropriate by the multi-strategy team and will make use of a wide range of listed instruments and derivatives but will not be structured as a fund-of-funds.
The underlying approach of the multi-strategy fund can be adapted to suit a range of different risk profiles and product types to include “Diversified Growth Funds” (DC defaults), a multi-strategy hedge fund and target outcome funds (targets can be performance or volatility based).
Derrick Dunne (pictured), a founding partner of Four, says: “We have been very interested in this fast growing space and have spent a good deal of time identifying the right team for us. We are delighted to have attracted such a high profile and experienced team. There is strong demand from clients for high quality multi-strategy portfolios and we believe that the approach employed by Mike has significant differentiators that will be attractive to a wide range of investors.”
Pinggera says: “Paul and I are delighted to be reunited at Four and are looking forward to continuing our previously successful partnership focussed on client driven investment solutions and service. Johan’s skills will be invaluable for the risk management and delivery of the fund.”
