The Independent UCITS Platform is pleased to announce the launch of its new Dublin, based UCITS platform. The new platform is called the Independent UCITS Platform (Ireland) ICAV and is structured as an Irish Collective Asset Management Vehicle (“ICAV”). The format is intended to be suitable for fund sponsors seeking to attract US clients since it meets the ‘tick-the-box’ election requirements for US taxable persons.
The fund has launched with two sub-funds.
- The Sabre Global Opportunities Fund is a long/short global equity fund designed to benefit from judgmental stock picking within a style-based framework. The fund is managed by Sabre Fund Management a London-based, boutique investment management firm.
- The WVS Macro Fund is an absolute return global-macro strategy aiming to capture superior risk-adjusted returns in the medium and longer term irrespective of traditional market cycles. The fund is sponsored by World Vision Securities which is adviser to the Fund.
