The Persimmon Long/Short Fund ('the Fund') is a multi-manager fund that seeks long term capital appreciation. The advisor believes that long/short equity strategies can produce equity-like returns with less volatility than traditional equity investments by combining a select group of experienced Long/Short Equity managers that offer complementary strategies across various Long/Short Equity styles, market capitalizations, sectors and geography.


Persimmon Capital Management, LP (“PCM”) was founded in 1998 and specializes in the construction and active management of portfolios of hedge fund strategies including Long/Short Equity. Our long history of investing in these strategies has given our team the experience needed to build a robust due diligence process and has fostered a deep network of relationships that is necessary to gain access to talented managers. The members of our seasoned Investment Committee have over 40 years of combined investment experience and serve as the co-Portfolio Managers of the Fund: Greg Horn and Art Holly.
