Fortem Capital: Best Alternative Growth Fund Manager Europe 2022

Fortem Capital

Since its launch in 2016, Fortem Capital has sought to create an environment of excellence, where young, talented and commercially-driven professionals are given the room and support to grow. All team members pull towards the common goal of redefining the investment process to help clients distinguish themselves from the competition. Fortem Capital offers independent and specialised services in liquid alternatives. It gives investors access to traditional asset classes that provide respectable returns. Fortem Capital’s alternative growth fund aims for positive returns of four to five percent over the medium to long term, while maintaining negligible equity market beta. Portfolio investments are rooted in alternative beta strategies across the asset class spectrum, providing capital growth independent of equity market cycles and macroeconomics. Fortem employs stringent counterparty controls, limiting credit exposure to high-grade sovereign risk, to capitalise on opportunistic trades caused by structural distortions in derivative markets. The team understands and manages expectations of fund performance to minimise potential surprises for clients. They conduct regular stress testing and don’t give in to knee-jerk reactions, as they’re confident in their strategy and skills. The fund was established in 2019, and the team is proud of the positive performance thus far. The firm is committed to delivering reliable solutions to clients and has built its technology infrastructure around that mandate. The judging panel recognises the top-notch team and tech-powered solutions of Fortem Capital with the 2022 award for Best Alternative Growth Fund Manager (Europe).
