We are pleased to announce the introduction of the Jupiter Absolute Return fund into our Academy of Funds. This is essentially a global equity long/short strategy run by James Clunie, who has a proven background of taking both long (buying stocks) and short (outright selling stocks) positions. We like his flexible approach to investing and his thoughtful three step process, which he uses to identify the best equity ideas. Ultimately the manager is looking to deliver positive absolute returns over the longer run which should be relatively uncorrelated to the direction of the wider stock market.
