The Verrazzano European Advantage fund will invest at least 80% of its assets in the shares of companies based in continental Europe.
Paris-based Verrazzano Capital was first launched in 2012, offering investors, including pension schemes and institutions, two long-short funds.

The new European Advantage fund is the first long-only product and open to external investors, rather than single-clients only as previously.

The new fund is sector agnostic and situation-based, with sectors across the board, according to a spokesperson for the company. Investors in the fund are similar to the previous long/short-fund investors, and most likely even more long-term including insurers, pensions and institutions.

Run by a team of sixteen professionals, Verrazzano Capital is headed by chief investment officer Rambourg.

“It is an important milestone for Verrazzano, which has evolved quickly since 2011 thanks to investor appetite for our tried and tested investment approach and the meticulous path we took building out the institutional platform,” he said.
