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.

We are pleased to announce the launch of the Arbiter Global Emerging Markets Fund as the third sub-fund of the Independent UCITS Platform, a Luxembourg SICAV. The fund, lead-managed by John Pollen of Arbiter Fund Managers Limited in London, will invest primarily in companies listed and operating in emerging markets and economies, and may also invest in companies listed on developed markets which have significant exposure to emerging countries

The fund, which was launched on 17th June 2013, is open to institutional investors, and offers both US Dollar and Euro denominated share classes.

John Pollen, lead manager of the fund, is an experienced portfolio manager who has lived and worked in London, Dublin, Asia and Africa, and has focuses on the fast growing emerging markets and economies for over thirty years.  He uses an investment philosophy and process which is based on top down country allocation and bottom up stock selection, with an emphasis on achieving absolute returns.

Jeremy Campbell-Lamerton, CEO of Arbiter Fund Managers Limited, said, “We are delighted to have launched the Arbiter Global Emerging Markets Fund.  John Pollen has an excellent reputation and a strong track record of investing in emerging markets, and his experience will be invaluable as we invest and grow the fund.  Using the Independent UCITS Platform has provided Arbiter with a quick and simple way to launch a fund which allows us to access investors across Europe, and beyond.”
