The MS Dalton Asia Pacific L/S UCITS Fund’s objective is to seek long-term capital appreciation and to generate absolute returns through a diversified portfolio of long and short positions in equity and equity related securities with a focus on the Asia Pacific region. Dalton Investments (“Dalton”), which manages over $3.2bn in assets within Asia out of $3.6bn in total (as of 31 December 2018), emphasizes value investments; as such, its’ investment process is based on bottom-up fundamental analysis that follows 3 steps: screening for qualitative traits and historical valuation, in-depth research and onsite visits and final assessment by James Rosenwald, as Portfolio Manager of the MS Dalton Asia Pacific UCITS Fund. Dalton typically looks to go long deep value opportunities, notably through companies that display strong alignment of interest, and short companies with declining catalysts. Macro‐economic trends are also considered when allocating stocks between countries and sectors. Dalton’s edge also lies in their risk management, concentrating on capital preservation and focused on a longer term investment perspective.
