Former Fidelity portfolio manager seeds long-short US equity fund

Chris Galizio, a former portfolio manager at Fidelity Institutional Asset Management (FIAM), has connected with LHA Ventures as portfolio manager and seed investor in the LHA Focused Long-Short Fund.

After a nearly thirteen-year career at Pioneer Investments and a ten-year run co-managing institutional assets at FIAM where, during his tenure, assets peaked at over USD7 billion, Galizio (pictured), has made the decision to broaden his investment horizons and manage a long-short US equity fund.
Galizio said: "I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the many years spent at Fidelity finding good companies in which to invest. At this stage of my life and with the market in its current state, I really wanted to broaden the scope of my investment opportunities to include short investing."
After leaving FIAM in December 2017, Galizio began managing his personal long-short portfolio. He recently found a new home on the LHA Ventures platform from which he will launch the LHA Focused Long-Short Fund. Galizio says that he has invested billions of dollars for institutional investors and understands that to be successful in continuing to garner institutional interest, he must invest alongside his limited partners. LHA Ventures, through its managing member, provides a full suite of support services to the fund, including compliance, accounting, marketing, and client services. 
According to Jeff Landle, CIO of Little Harbor Advisors, which is the manager of LHA Ventures: "Chris' approach to investing long and short is well differentiated from most other long-short funds. He applies a highly-informed macro view of the economy and market to investment decisions that are actually based on deep fundamental, bottom-up analysis. The combination of macro perspective and bottom-up stock selection couldn't be more appropriate for this rapidly evolving environment."
