UK equities are focus of two long/short Old Mutual funds

Old Mutual Fund Managers has launched two long/short equity funds focusing on the UK equity markets, a large-cap portfolio and a UK specialist fund.

Richard Moore is to manage the UK large-cap fund while Ashton Bradbury will run the UK specialist fund, which will focus on companies outside the FTSE 100 index.

Both Moore and Bradbury believe long-term success in returns comes from employing a flexible approach to investment as no single rigid style can accommodate all stages of the business cyc
