Description
The Cedrus Cleantechnology Portfolio utilizes a long/short equity strategy with the goal of achieving consistent, above-market returns from investing in companies which utilize nanotechnology, in all or part of their business portfolio, in the clean technology industry.

Cedrus views the intersection of clean technology and nanotechnology as a dynamic and rapidly growing driver for this industry which is in the nascent stage of its development. We expect many leading companies of the future to come from this industry as invention and innovation combine to solve the world's increasing demand for energy and, in particular, clean energy.

We consider a company to be involved in nanotechnology if the technology is involved in the nanoscale of 1 to 100 nanometers. By using this definition, the number of investment-worthy companies expands significantly.

Target investments are companies found in the solar, wind, fuel cell, smart grid, geothermal and hydro industries (power generation and desalination), among others, that we expect to be the leading companies over the investment horizon.  Conversely, we are able to capitalize on selling short those companies whose competitive position is inferior to the leaders and which we expect to have a diminishing share of the market and its total profit pool.


Strategy
The strategy is to use a proprietary combination of fundamental, quantitative and technical analyses to capitalize upon mispricing in the equity markets of the leading and lagging competitors within the clean technology industry.

We employ a long/short strategy to manage the portfolio combined with several risk management controls including, but not limited to, net long exposure constraint (by dollar value and beta), initial position size as a percentage of the portfolio, different maximum position sizes for longs and shorts, sector concentration, position liquidity, stop losses for individual positions and the portfolio as a whole.
