AlphaMetrix and Switzerland’s Decision Analytics Advisory Partners have teamed up to provide non-U.S. investors access to UCITS-compliant versions of boutique CTA and hedge fund managers.
AlphaMetrix operates the AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace hedge fund platform which services assets of over $6.3 billion while Decision Analytics is behind the Next Generation UCITS platform.
Under the terms of the collaboration, Decision Analytics will partner with some of the 100 AlphaMetrix-approved managers to structure and set up the UCITS offerings which will be launched, administered, and monitored on the Next Generation platform domiciled in either Germany or Luxembourg.
Next Generation UCITS funds will be listed on the AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace alongside managers' non-UCITS funds and managed account vehicles, providing non-U.S investors a broader choice of vehicles offered by selected managers, on a worldwide basis.
"We are excited to be involved in the unique Next Generation UCITS business which offers significant benefits to our platform managers and expanded universe of investors," states Mikus Kins, AlphaMetrix head of business development. "The AlphaMetrix Global Marketplace, by allowing investors and managers to track fund performance, risk management and portfolio data on a near real time basis and now via the UCITS offering, will connect managers directly with non-U.S. investors on a truly global scale.”
Next Generation funds are offered to qualified investors on a private placement basis via a range of vehicles including single manager and multi-manager funds, customized portfolios and separate managed accounts.
