Sloane Robinson is ringing in the New Year with a new UCITS III-compliant hedge fund launch.
The London-based firm will offer a regulation-friendly Asian hedge fund I the first quarter. According to HedgeWeek, the new offering is likely to mirror to a great extent its flagship Asia hedge fund, which uses no leverage and employs a strategy that is already UCITS-friendly.
The new fund will be part of Deutsche Bank’s UCITS platform. Sloane Robinson’s earlier UCITS vehicle, an emerging markets fund, launched in May on Schroders’ UCITS platform.
“We have chosen to work with Detusche Bank because of their broad experience in the UCITS environment and commitment to deliver excellence,” Sloane Robinson CEO Hugh Sloane said.
Deutsche Bank’s platform is becoming something of an all-star lineup, with funds from Paulson & Co., Toscafund Asset Management and Traxis Partners.
