Marketfield Asset Management is launching the first strategy to be offered under Europe's new Alternative Investment Fund Manager Directive.
Marketfield Dublin, a liquid alternatives fund that had previously only existed as a 1940 Act fund in the United States and a Cayman Islands offshore fund, has been redomiciled to Dublin as a Qualifying Investor Alternative Investment Fund.
Said Michael Shaoul, CEO of Marketfield, in a statement: “We wanted to find a solution for a fund that could be broadly distributed across Europe and that uses a legal structure that investors will be comfortable with.”
European institutional and wealth managers prefer European regulated funds, said Marketfield, which opted for the QIAIF structure over UCITS because it allows the firm to physically short single-name stocks and “effectively replicate the investment opportunity it offers to non-European and domestic U.S. investors.”
The fund is initially being offered via wealth management distribution channels in Europe.
