The Skyline UCITS Fund, an emerging markets long/short strategy on ML Capital’s MontLake UCITS platform, returned 20.5% in its debut year of operations.
The fund, which saw “significant inflows” in the last quarter, now has assets under management of $56 million, according to UK-based Skyline Capital Management.
