“It is impossible to produce superior performance unless you do something different from the majority”

Sir John Templeton

Our PHILOSOPHY

Fundamentally Driven

Research Focused

Actively Managed

Summary

8 Year Track Record Blue Ocean Odyssey have been implementing an equity hedge fund strategy since 2015. The Fund is focused on developed markets with major emphasis in the United States, United Kingdom and European equity markets.
Utilises Multiple Strategies Blue Ocean Odyssey utilises multiple strategies including Long/Short, Merger Arbitrage, Dividend Yield, Relative Value and Event-Driven in order to maximize total absolute return, emphasizing investment in securities with short/medium term catalysts and capital appreciation prospects.
Concentrated Portfolio Blue Ocean Odyssey aims to deliver attractive rates of return over a one to three year time horizon within a sufficiently concentrated portfolio of our best ideas. The Fund does not believe in capital allocation across multiple passive positions simply due to capital availability. We believe this results in dilution of our best investment ideas. The Fund is willing to remain in cash and strategically invest when our best ideas present themselves.
Holistic Market View Blue Ocean Odyssey carefully monitors catalysts and events across all investments and actively hedges with options when appropriate.
Active Management The Fund is actively managed and aims to harness our fundamentally driven, research focused investment process to drive alpha and to hedge risks accordingly.
Like-Minded Investors Blue Ocean Odyssey looks for investors who share in our investment values and beliefs.

Strategy
Differentiators

Blue Ocean Odyssey believes in achieving superior long term risk adjusted returns by implementing a number of different strategies dependent on market conditions and opportunities

Investment Approach

Idea Generation

The Idea Generation process consists of narrowing the universe of equities to fit our investment profile. The Fund looks to narrow US, UK and European Equities, first into sectors and then into our multiple strategies.

Security Selection

Blue Ocean Odyssey likes to own great businesses that can compound shareholder value over time at reasonable valuations and will purchase good businesses at sharply discounted valuations based on our fundamental analysis and estimates of future earnings.

Risk Management

Following from the Investment Philosophy of capital preservation, Risk Management at Blue Ocean aims to protect the value of the Fund's investment portfolio against fluctuations in the securities markets, changes in interest rates, and other market and operational risks.

Sell Discipline

Blue Ocean Odyssey believes in active position management and a strong sale discipline. The Fund places an up-front emphasis on active portfolio management through a disciplined scaling approach and clearly defined exit parameters.
