The F/m Investments European L/S Small Cap Fund (ticker: BESMX/BESRX) seeks to generate absolute returns with an unconstrained, consistent, and long-term investment approach in European small cap companies. The Fund is long/short and benchmark agnostic. It is concentrated—usually 30 to 80 holdings—as only the managers’ best ideas gain a place in the portfolio.
The Fund is managed by F/m Investments LLC, the investment adviser affiliate of F/m Acceleration LLC. F/m Acceleration seeks to bring unique, high-performance asset managers to US investors, and to provide the platform and resources to power asset manager growth.
With its predecessor firm founded in 2014, F/m Acceleration was launched in 2019 by a team of senior investment industry executives, backed by a leading insurance company, and has approximately $1.3 billion in assets under administration as of September 30, 2019.
The Fund is sub-advised by S.W. Mitchell Capital, a specialist European equities investment boutique based in London. Founded in 2005, S. W. Mitchell Capital manages approximately $1.2 billion (as of November 30, 2019) for a global client base which includes pension funds, endowments, financial advisers, charities, family offices and high net worth individuals.
