Martin Currie To Launch Two UCITS Hedge Funds

Sep 15 2010 | 2:43am ET

Martin Currie is preparing to launch a pair of UCITS III-compliant hedge funds, one focused on Europe and the other on Japan.

The long-biased Absolute Alpha funds are expected to debut this month, Investment Week reports.  The Europe fund will be managed by Michael Brown, who runs Martin Currie’s European hedge fund, while Keith Donaldson will help the Japan hedge fund.

Both funds will focus on companies with an international focus.

“International companies tend to be more forthright generating returns for shareholders,” Donaldson told IW.

Brown said the new fund will focus on France and Germany.

“We have seen greater growth in the periphery of Europe in the past, but now we will see stronger growth in the core,” he said.
