Advisors & Partners Debuts A&P Emerging Manager UCITS Index

Aug 31 2017 | 9:18pm ET

London-based alternative asset specialist Advisors & Partners has launched a new emerging manager UCITS index that provides investors with an interest in early stage hedge fund investing with a research and benchmarking tool and to provide better visibility to asset managers who have launched UCITS-compliant investment products. 

The new index, named the A&P Emerging Manager UCITS Index, is equally and initially comprised of eight early stage UCITS funds already included in the company’s flagship A&P Emerging Manager Index. Qualification for the index is subject to certain eligibility criteria based on qualitative and quantitative requirements, which includes index members having less than three years of performance track record and assets under management between $20 million and $500 million at the time of selection.

“We believe UCITS funds will continue to thrive and grow in this competitive landscape, particularly as investors are increasingly looking at more regulated products,” said Jonathan Cantouris, managing partner of Advisors & Partners, in a statement. “Our objective for the A&P Emerging Manager UCITS Index is to become the global standard for UCITS-compliant early stage hedge fund investing, performance measurement and to improve the visibility of newly launched UCITS compliant hedge funds.”
