Algebris Investment is launching a UCITS III-compliant version of its long/short financial equities fund, becoming the fourth fund on Morgan Stanley’s UCITS platform.
The new fund is still fundraising, HFMWeek reports, and will not have a final launch total until this week. MS Algebris Global Financials will be managed by Algebris’ Davide Serra and Eric Halet.

Morgan Stanley launched its FundLogic Alternatives UCITS platform in September.
