Debutants 

There are three first timers this month under our Alt Ucits ratings methodology:

Newly Citywire + rated Lionel Rayon of Schroders, who runs the Schroder ISF European Alpha Abs Return C Acc fund within the Alternative Ucits - Long/Short Equity sector, has been awarded with his first Citywire rating ever.

Meanwhile, Stefan Gretschel and Christian Roch, co-managers at Rheinische Portfolio, have been awarded with a Citywire + rating. They manage the Rheinische Portfolio fund, which sits in the Mixed Assets - Absolute Return EUR sector. 

Rising stars

Among the managers making their way up the ratings are Vinayak Potti of HSBC, who has achieved a AAA rating while running the HSBC GIF GEM Debt Total Return M1C EUR fund in Alternative Ucits - Bond Strategies. He climbed from a AA rating, which he achieved in November last year.

This is while the duo of Guillaume Jamet and Jean-Marie Lauren, who co-run the Lyxor Epsilon Global Trend I-EUR in the Alt Ucits – Managed Futures, are now Citywire AA-rated. Jamet has achieved his first AA rating since June 2016 while Lauren has earned his first AA rating ever.
