Laur Capital Management is offering investment opportunities in Laur Capital Partners to accredited investors, family offices and fund of funds.
Laur Capital Partners is an opportunistic long/short equity hedge fund.
Its investment philosophy highly weights behavioural finance in the decision-making process taking a contrarian investment approach to exploit short term pricing dislocations. The fund seeks to achieve annual returns, uncorrelated to any market index, by investing only in large cap securities.
Portfolio manager David Laurent has deployed a similar investment approach throughout his career and has over 20 years of experience investing and building financial technology solutions.
Laur, in its fourth quarter letter to investors, discussed the probability of higher interest rates and additional quantitative easing in 2014, which, with the combination of one of the strongest bull market runs in history entering a sixth year, could result in as much as a 10 per cent market decline as investor anxieties and volatility rise. Laur went on to state, based on past performance, it believes it can deliver maximum potential returns with increased volatility.
"The basis of my past investment success has been my ability to remain disciplined to my investment philosophy during times of extreme volatility and uncertainty,” says Laurent. "The strategy can actually perform better during these periods."
