Wasatch Makes the Pitch for Long/Short Mutual Funds

by: Daniel Tovrov

Wasatch Advisors has recently released a white paper on long/short mutual funds. Touting the benefits of long/short offerings, the paper comes months after Wasatch's December acquisition of three 1st Source Monogram funds, including the Long/Short Fund.

The fund, which was subsequently rebranded the Wasatch-1st Source Long/Short Fund, currently has $163 million of AUM.

The release of the white paper marks the first substantial promotion of the fund.

"We weren't familiar with long/short funds either, until we started looking at buying 1st Source," said Eric Huefner, director of mutual funds and brand management at Wasatch, in an interview with The MFWire.

"It's a misunderstood class and there are probably a lot of people who could benefit from this information as well, especially with the volatility in the market. A lot of people are nervous still, and they would love to have something that would help on the downside as well as capture a lot of the upside," he added.

The white paper provides an overview of the different types of long/short funds and the investment strategies and risks surrounding each.

Wasatch completed its acquisition of the three 1st Source Monogram funds on December 15.
