Altana Director Alignment Strategy Europe

Investment Approach & Edge

The Altana Director Alignment Strategy Europe is a systematic equity Long/Short strategy investing in all major European stocks including Turkish and Russian stocks with a market cap over US$1 billion. It generates alpha on both the long and the short books by filtering directors’ transactions.

Our method is based on having a deeper understanding of the reasons behind each director’s purchases and sales.

It is only by analyzing the full picture of all the transactions happening in that period of time that you can conclude if it yields true alpha. In order to have liquidity and lower volatility, we only consider companies with a market cap of above $1 billion on the long side, and over $1 billion on the short side.

There are many reasons for corporate insiders to sell but only one reason to buy. Maybe, just
maybe, savvy investors will be able to profit from the acceptable face of insider trading
Peter Lynch, Manager, Magellan Fund – Fidelity Investment, 1977-1990

Our Edge is based on the following:


True alpha can be obtained from an information advantage.


Companies move closer and closer to real time reporting.


The individuals best informed on their company performance are the directors.


Directors are better market timers.
