Fund added to Macquarie Wrap

Melbourne-based boutique fund manager L1 Capital's Long Short Fund has been added to Macquarie's investment and super wrap menu.

The fund, which recently received a "Recommended" rating from both Zenith Investment Partners and Lonsec Research, was launched in 2014 and has returned 38.9% pa, placing it in the top 20 long short funds globally in both 2015 and 2016.

Its objective is to deliver a net return of at least 10% pa with strong capital protection characteristics, and can be accessed via its retail distribution partner Channel Capital.

"The L1 Capital Long Short Fund has delivered outstanding risk-adjusted returns with significantly lower beta and volatility than the ASX200," Channel Capital's head of distribution, Andrew King said.

"The fund has outperformed the market in every market sell-off since inception, which stands it apart from other funds. We are very excited to offer advisers access to what we believe is the best long short strategy in the market."

L1 Capital is a boutique fund manager based in Melbourne founded in 2007 by Raphael Lamm (ex-Cooper Investors) and Mark Landau (ex-Invesco).

The L1 Capital Australian Equities Fund (large cap, long only) was launched in 2007 and has outperformed the ASX200 by 9.9% pa over the past three years and by 7.1% pa since inception.
