Fund Inception 23 October 2017
The performance data shown represents past performance. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. The investment return and the principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.
Strategy & Manager
The Strategy employs a market neutral approach that relies on stock picking in European equity markets. Investments are considered based on (i) the relative valuation of a company, (ii) the liquidity of that company; and (iii) the contribution that the stock would make to the conceptual diversification (and sectors, styles and geographies) of the portfolio.
Perdurance Asset Management was founded in 2014 by Ivan Briery. The firm comprises an investment team with an average of 21 years of industry experience.

Trading Advisor's Commentaryas of 31/10/2023
The primary alpha contributors for the month were Rheinmetall and Leonardo (defence) adding 1.4% of alpha in total amid rising tensions in the Middle East and Israel’s military response to Hamas terror attack.
The main alpha detractor was Alstom (rail infrastructure) costing 2.8% of alpha after the stock suffered an extraordinary share price drop of 38% on October 5th. We believe the market capitalisation fall of EUR 3bn makes no sense in the light of a EUR 1bn transitory, funded, working capital drift, with rather limited earnings consequences, keeping in mind that Alstom’s inventories are pre-sold goods. African Oil (oil exploration) detracted 0.7% of alpha on little additional news, as markets await the conclusions of the exploration campaign offshore Southern Namibia. Ubisoft (video games) lost 0.6% of alpha after the company announced that the launch of XDefiant would be delayed to 2024, and despite releasing better-than-expected results later in the month.
No other position contributed more than 0.5% of alpha in absolute terms.
The Fund has remained market neutral throughout the month. The Fund has sought both to maintain a strict market neutrality and achieve a broadly macro-economically neutral portfolio. There were 24 positions in the long book at the end of the month. The top 5 long positions comprised 38% of the Fund’s NAV at the end of the month as the Fund remained very concentrated. The Fund is highly liquid, as 100% of the portfolio could be liquidated within 1 week, using conservative liquidity assumptions.
