The Giano UCITS Fund runs a Long/Short European Equity strategy that vigorously pursues and thrives on innovation; focusing on the integration of new machine learning technology. We are a highly experienced team centred on finding equity opportunities utilising tools that improve the productivity of the investment process, allowing us to identify a greater number of opportunities whilst being more objective and disciplined.
Michele is passionate about the need to innovate, increasing product value through technology, penetrating new markets and increasing the value-add for the client. Michele identifies the moments of extreme valuations that may be caused by specific company events or by market capitulations.
Effective and efficient automation of parts of the investment process, where possible utilising the learning methodologies of the "machine" are used to make quality investment decisions quickly and objectively, complementing the subjective experience of the fund manager. Michele continues to operate as the underlying driving force of the overall investment process but decisions are now augmented through the crucial support of machine learning automation and sound quantitative models.
The investment strategy of the fund is today based on two pillars. One is investing in specific well-researched stocks, long and short, for the medium to long-term. The second is equity investing assisted by algorithms based on advanced mathematical and quantitative models that analyse and automate the investment process.
Philanthropy - One of our principles is to ensure that we are contributing to humanity in some meaningful way. We are therefore developing a foundation where all employees will contribute at some level.
Management team has a long history of investing in the strategy which means strong capital preservation.
