The Fund’s Sub-Investment Manager, Kettle Hill Capital Management, is a long/short equity fund manager, established by Andrew Kurita in 2003 and is located in New York, USA.


The investment style is fundamental bottom up research, combined with macro awareness and a contrarian value investment strategy to deliver superior rates of return in any market environment. The investment philosophy focuses on risk-reward opportunities and inefficiencies in the US small-capitalisation universe. Independent thinking, unique stock selection, excellent fundamental research, and sound investment discipline provide an attractive risk/reward opportunity for the strategy. Andrew Kurita, Kettle Hill’s CIO and Founding Partner, has been successfully managing this investment strategy since inception, and has been investing in small capitalisation stocks since 1996. He is supported by a well resourced team of experienced investment professionals.
