The Artemis US Extended Alpha Fund uses a ‘long/short’ strategy in seeking to grow capital over five years. It combines a traditional portfolio of around 70 to 120 ‘long’ positions, where the manager buys shares he expects to increase in value, with a portfolio of ‘short’ positions where the manager buys shares he expect to decrease in value. A short position involves the sale of an asset the fund does not physically own with the aim of buying it later at a lower price to secure a profit.

All financial investments involve taking risk and the value of an investment may go down as well as up. This fund carries an additional risk that the price of a shorted asset goes up, resulting in the fund making a loss on the trade, causing a negative contribution to the fund’s overall performance. The fund uses derivatives to achieve a short position synthetically. If you are unsure whether a fund that uses shorting and derivatives is suitable for you, we would encourage you to consult a financial adviser.
