Quest Convertible Arbitrage  

The MontLake Quest Convertible Absolute Return UCITS Fund utilizes a fundamentally and quantitatively driven strategy that yields superior risk-adjusted, uncorrelated returns. This strategy seeks to capitalize on the global macro cycles of equity, credit and interest rates that drive the constantly changing valuations in the convertible universe.  

Quest’s investment philosophy is that a well structured portfolio of high quality equity and equity-linked securities can deliver superior absolute returns with a low volatility return profile. The philosophy is put into practice via a thematic, top-down investment strategy that harnesses the inherently superior defensive characteristics of convertible securities coupled with their robust upside potential.

The strategy employs a combination of macro, sector, and company specific inputs to identify cross asset, geographic, and structural trends, determine associated short- to medium-term cyclical impacts, and gain exposure to the most likely beneficiaries.

The strategy utilizes “best in class” convertible and equity-linked securities to exploit each investment theme. Specific investment targets are vetted via a comprehensive bottom-up research process.
