Equinox Fund Management is an independent asset management company committed to deliver exceptional risk/return ratios to its investors. We invest in the securities markets of Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) since 1996.
We have a fantastic opportunity to invest in a poorly understood and unloved region. Our ability to outperform the market is based on our ability to continually develop a clear vision of the ever-changing rules of the game. We strive to develop ideas and strategies that bring value to our clients, regardless of the economic environment. Our results are underpinned by rigorous investment processes based on fundamental research and strict risk management. We have developed a unique expertise in selecting the best stocks and combining them to build robust, high-performance portfolios. Equinox has delivered annualized returns of 23% to investors between 2000 and 2020.
We have been investing in listed stocks on behalf of our clients since 1996. Which means that we have been through the Russian government debt default in 1998, the commodity crisis in 2008 or the implementation of Western sanctions against Russia in 2014. Thanks to our local presence, we have been able to build strong relationships with many companies and policy makers over the years. Our frequent meetings with business leaders allow us to quickly identify changing trends and closely monitor the progress of our holdings. We are ready to meet the many challenges that Russia will face in the years to come.
We always try to keep things simple. It turns out that it’s easier to make things complex than it is to simplify them. This constant challenge forces us to understand what we are doing and to stay within our circle of competence. We aim to be long-term, buy-and-hold investors. We seek to own only stocks that will compound in value over the years. We do not engage in trading, short selling, market timing, indexing, hedging or any other complex moves. We believe that the more you hold on to something, the more you develop focus and tenacity. Two characteristics that are the most critical factors for success.
