Sector Gamma is a partner owned, independent asset manager spun out of Sector Asset Management in 2006. Our ambition is to add value through active and fundamentally based stock selection strategies. Sector Gamma consists of five investment professionals and the company manages two funds. Our market neutral hedge fund, Sector Healthcare Fund, was launched in 2005 and our long only UCITS fund, Sector Healthcare Value Fund, was launched in 2010. Our operations and Scandinavian investor relations efforts are outsourced to our long-term partner, Sector Asset Management. Our fund structure is based in Ireland and the company is authorized, by the Financial Supervisory Authority of Norway, as an investment firm.
As institutional investors, we have a duty to act in the best long-term interests of our beneficiaries. In this fiduciary role, we believe that environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) issues can affect the performance of our investment Portfolios.
We aspire to comply with the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI). By integrating the Principles in our investment process, we seek to achieve the best possible risk-adjusted returns for our beneficiaries as well as better align our investment activities with the broader interests of society.
