The Independent UCITS Platform is a Luxembourg domiciled UCITS IV SICAV (Societe d'Investment a Capital Variable) regulated by the CSSF (Luxembourg's financial regulator).

The Platform provides a relatively straightforward and cost effective solution for boutique managers seeking to launch UCITS funds under their own brand names, without undergoing the time and expense of creating a new SICAV.

Managers are able to launch sub-funds quickly and economically, with their own branding and distribution arrangements, and then concentrate on managing their assets and their business.
