Regal Funds Management was founded in 2004 by Andrew and Philip King.  Regal utilises a long/short investment strategy and performs investment management and investment advisory services to a number of Australian Unit Trusts and Cayman Island Companies.

Regal launched its first product, the Atlantic Absolute Return Fund in March 2004 which has twice been named the Australian Hedge Fund of the Year.  The fund was launched in order to provide a differentiated investment opportunity for the Australian market by focusing on absolute returns and seeking to benefit from both long and short side investing.

In 2005, Regal launched its market neutral strategy via the Amazon Market Neutral Fund with a focus on attractive returns with low correlation to equity markets.  This strategy was made available to Australian investors in 2007 via the Tasman Market Neutral Fund.  These funds have been recognised for numerous awards since their inception including Australian Hedge Fund of the Year, Best Asian Relative Value Fund (Eurekahedge Asian Hedge Fund Awards) and Best Market Neutral Fund (Asia Hedge Awards).

Regal’s Australian Long Short Equity Fund launched in 2009 with the strategy made available to retail investors in 2011.  These funds are designed to provide exposure to specific parts of the market while still taking advantage of Regal’s investment capabilities on the long and the short side.

“Regal launched its first product, the Atlantic Absolute Return Fund in March 2004 which has twice been named the Australian Hedge Fund of the Year.”

In early 2015, Regal launched the Regal Australian Small Companies Fund to profit from opportunities in the small companies space utilising Regal’s proven investment process.  Similar to Regal’s other products, the fund employs a long/short approach to increase the breadth of investment opportunities for enhanced potential to outperform.

More recently, Regal launched its Emerging Companies strategy which focuses on investments in the Pre-IPO, unlisted expansion capital and the listed microcap space.  The first fund was launched in late 2016 and the second fund launched in April 2018.  The Emerging Companies strategy is different to Regal’s other strategies in that the funds are closed-end with a one-time subscription date and a fund term of 5 years.
