RWC Plans UCITS Versions Of All New Hedge Funds

Mar 2 2010 | 4:30am ET

RWC Partners has carved a niche for itself as a major manager of UCITS III-compliant hedge funds, and the London-based firm has no intention of giving that up as UCITS funds become big business.

The firm plans to launch a UCITS-complaint version of every new hedge fund it launches, wherever possible.

“As long as the hedge fund can be run with the liquidity of UCITS, and can be clearly articulated to a retail audience, then that is what we would do,” Daniel Mannix, head of business development, told Investment Week.

“It is very important on a five-year view of regulation to offer regulated long/short funds,” he added. “There is huge flexibility allowed under UCITS III.”

RWC Partners, which is owned and controlled by the portfolio managers and management team, manages assets of over $2.5 billion. Of that, over $1.5 billion is in UCITS funds.
