Strategy & Manager
The objective of the InRIS Perdurance Market Neutral Fund (the “Fund”) is to produce long term capital growth by investing in a market neutral portfolio of European equities while delivering low correlation to the European equity markets.
The Fund will invest in equities listed or traded on a Recognised Exchange mainly in developed European countries and will also seek exposure to equitymarkets by investing in financial derivative instruments (“FDIs”). The Fund will employ a European equity market neutral strategy that relies primarily on stock picking.
Some of the factors considered by the Fund in its selection of investments are (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 (the Trading Advisor), founded in 2014 by Ivan Briery, comprises an investment team with an average of 21 years of industry experience amongst them. Ivan was also the co-founder and portfolio manager of the renowned Voltaire Fund (1998-2005).

Mr. Briery started his full time career as an equity analyst and portfolio manager with a French stockbroker in 1989.

In 1998 Mr. Briery left Soros Fund Management and co-founded Voltaire Asset Management Limited, which returned assets to investors in 2005 after seven years of very successful investment performance.
Until 2014, Mr. Briery was on an extended sabbatical.
Yann Le Tallec, Chief Risk Officer (16 Years of Experience)

Trading Advisor's Commentaryas of
The performance of the Fund during September was -1.53%, bringing the YTD performance to -8.41%. In comparison, the Stoxx 600 Europe ex-UK index was down 1.00% in the month and down 8.45% year to date.
Ams AG (an advanced sensor manufacturer) contributed 1.73% to the Fund’s NAV as Osram Licht, which Ams acquired last year, released good results. Swedish Match (smokeless tobacco products) contributed 0.53% as ZYN (nicotine pouches) sales growth strengthened. Leonardo (Aerospace & Defense) detracted 0.74% as uncertainty around civil aerospace remained, despite a good order book on the defense side. Repsol (integrated oil company) detracted 0.70% in line with other stocks in the sector. Korian (care homes) cost 0.63% as COVID-19 cases in care homes kept worrying the market. No other name contributed more than 0.5% of absolute alpha.
The Fund has remained market neutral throughout the month and had a net beta-adjusted exposure of 0% at the end of the month. The Fund has sought both to maintain a strict market neutrality and achieve a broadly macro-economically neutral portfolio. There were 20 positions in the long book at the end of the month. The top 5 long positions comprised 34% of the Fund NAV at the end of the month, a level of concentration slightly lower than usual because we closed several large positions in the past months. The portfolio was more biased towards mid-caps than the index, which has a higher large-cap representation. The Fund is highly liquid, as 100% of the portfolio could be liquidated within 1 week, using conservative liquidity assumptions.
