Verrazzano Capital is an independent boutique Hedge Fund specialised in European Equities. Our teams manage both Long/Short and Long only investment strategies on behalf of professional and private investors.
Founded in late 2011 by Guillaume Rambourg, Verrazzano Capital has its roots in the European Large cap team at Gartmore Investment Management where Guillaume worked from 1995 to 2010, co-managing Long only and Long/Short portfolios. The investment strategies managed by Verrazzano are akin to those that Guillaume Rambourg successfully co-managed during his time at Gartmore and benefit from an investment process honed over a fifteen year period and further enhanced here at Verrazzano.
More recently, we welcomed portfolio manager Youssef Benhaddouch who respectively manage the Verrazzano Concentrated Equity Europe Fund, a fund that was launched on our Luxembourg UCITS platform in 2016.
The firm takes its name from the Verrazano-Narrows Bridge in New York that was named after the explorer, Giovanni da Verrazzano, the first European to enter the New York Harbour in the early 1500s. The bridge has been the starting point of the New York City Marathon since 1976, a race that epitomises Verrazzano’s core values: performance, discipline, resilience, commitment and passion.
