Qatar and Switzerland-based investment management firm Aventicum Capital Management has launched its second investment business.
HedgeWeek reported that Aventicum Capital’s Aventicum Alternative Equities—based in Geneva, Switzerland—will initially focus on offering investors an absolute return approach to European markets. The firm launched its Qatar-based Aventicum Frontier Markets business last summer.
Aventicum Alternative Equities’ maiden fund will be a European-focused long/short equity strategy managed by the business’ chief investment officer Riccardo Cavo and portfolio managers Andrea Buda and Barry Kelly.
Aventicum Capital is a joint venture between Credit Suisse and Qatar Holding.
