The Rise of Alternative UCITS

24 February 2015
Presenters: Andrew J. Massey

The increased regulatory burden on alternative investment funds under the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive has levelled the playing field for UCITS and European alternative investment funds. Meanwhile there is a growing trend towards UCITS with increasingly sophisticated investment strategies. The ability to package an alternative investment strategy within a product that may be marketed to a wider range of potential investors has many attractions for investment managers, and would satisfy perceived increased investor appetite for such products.

This seminar explores the options and practical considerations for UCITS pursuing alternative investment strategies.
