Luxembourg-based KMG Sicav SIF has launched a platform for hedge fund managers to create their own Sicav SIF funds.
KMG’s CEO Kevin Mudd said managers as well as advisors, family offices and high net-worth individuals the platform to form their own Luxembourg-regulated Sicav SIF funds, which can accommodate all asset classes including hedge funds, private equity and real estate, and do not carry any restrictions on leverage.

The KMG Sicav SIF platform also promises fund managers cost-effectiveness through economies of scale, providing all back office support, administration and other services.
