Southeast Asia Strategy

Long / Short Equity

MPA Capital Management LLC (MPA) , an affiliate of M&P, offers institutional investors an Asian Long Short strategy.

The strategy employs a balanced, moderate directional, long/short equity strategy that focuses predominantly on the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). Depending upon the opportunity set, the strategy may also have exposure to stocks elsewhere in the Asia-Pacific region.

The strategy’s approach seeks to emphasize alpha over beta focusing on stock-specific idiosyncratic risk. The strategy will typically operate with moderate gross and net exposure. The strategy will be generally concentrated, and the short book seeks to generate profits as well as mitigate risk.

MPA believes ASEAN markets provide attractive investment opportunities but can be volatile. The strategy’s moderate net exposure and balanced long short approach looks to achieve attractive risk adjusted returns with lower volatility and less beta than traditional Asian approaches.

The strategy’s differentiating factors include:

Geographically unique
Focused on alpha
Potential for strong returns
Reduced levels of volatility & downside deviation
Low levels of correlation to traditional and most hedged strategies
