Belgrave Capital Management Unveils New UCITS-Compliant Fund of Funds

Jan 18 2017 | 11:18pm ET

London-based Belgrave Capital Management has launched a new UCITS-compliant fund of funds strategy aimed at providing exposure to leading equity managers.

Part of the company’s multi-portfolio and multi-advisor Vitruvius SICAV, the new fund is domiciled in Luxembourg and was soft-launched last September, according to Citywire. Named the Vitruvius UCITS Selection Fund, the new vehicle allocates to 12-18 primarily long/short equity managers with whom the company has long-term investment relationships, as well as capacity-constrained managers. It also provides a gateway for investors to engage funds unavailable in smaller denominations. 

Global macro and long-only managers will also be considered, Citywire reported. The fund will be overseen by Belgrave Capital Management founder Mattia Nocera and will be split widely across U.S., European, Asian and global managers.

The fund's top five initial allocations reportedly included the Cantillon Global Equity fund, the Egerton Capital Equity fund, the Platinum World - International fund, the Kairos Pegasus UCITS fund, and the Kingdon Global Long Short fund.

Founded in 1994, Belgrave Capital Management specializes in the research and selection of investment advisors and in the management of alternative investment strategies. It is a subsidiary of Lugano-based Banca del Ceresio, which is engaged in private banking, asset management, brokerage and custodial services for institutional and private clients.
