Matrix Asia Fund expands team

Matrix Asia Fund has added Sam West to its team, joining Rupert Foster and David Peerless.

Since its launch 18 months ago, the Matrix Asia Fund has outperformed the MSCI Asia Pacific Index by 48.09 per cent returning 33.89 per cent by using a long-short strategy that increasingly focuses on the relative winners and losers of the Asian growth story.

The fund holds 30 to 40 stocks between its long and short books.
 
West joins from Cantillon Capital Management and previously worked with Foster (pictured) at FM Capital.
 
Foster says: “I am delighted that Sam is joining the team. His Asian experience will prove invaluable as I firmly believe that it is imperative to understand the structure of each country’s economy; its idiosyncrasies and stage of development.
 
“Sam’s joining could not be more timely. My belief in Japan is founded on the fact that its domestic recovery is delayed and will only really start this year with the real estate market bottoming in the first half. I also believe that that the excitement over tech spending both at the consumer and industrial level will continue.”
