ML Capital to launch two new UCITS funds on the MontLake Platform

RELATED TOPICS​

ML Capital will be launching two new UCITs funds this quarter on the MontLake Platform. As well as the the launch of the Goldwinds Global Macro UCITS Fund on 13 February – as previously reported in a Hedgeweek exclusive on 29 January – ML Capital is also due to launch the RP Systematic Emerging Market UCITS Fund on 1 March. 

The two launches will bring the MontLake UCITS platform AUM to over USD100 million.

The RP Systematic Emerging Market UCITS Fund will be managed by RP Capital UK Ltd, with Apostolos Avlonitis and Constantinos Giachalis responsible for managing the day to day portfolio. Avlonitis & Giachalis have been managing the strategy since 2006 at RP Capital. The RP Systematic Emerging Market UCITS Fund will utilise macro systematic models focusing on the EMEA region. The fund will offer exposure to the Emerging markets but with limited volatility and drawdown. Since inception in 2006 the strategy has annualized net returns of 8.7% per annum.

Cyril Delamare (pictured), CEO of ML Capital, says: “The two new launches demonstrate ML Capital’s continued commitment to deliver products that investors are demanding today. We have seen through our latest Barometer results that Global Macro strategies have steadily risen in popularity. The launch of the Goldwinds Global Macro UCITS Fund and the RP Systematic Emerging Markets UCITS Fund are in direct response to this trend. We are extremely excited to welcome Goldwinds and RP to the MontLake UCITS platform, which bring experienced fund managers with strong track records to the alternative UCITS market.”

Apostolos Avlonitis, Portfolio Manager of RP Capital Group, says: “We are very excited to offer this unique product to UCITS investors in the MontLake platform. We believe it will be of particular interest to emerging market investors who want to capture the upside of this high-growth region with a low volatility and low correlation strategy, as well as to macro-systematic investors who want to diversify their portfolio.”

The MontLake UCITS Platform has been carefully constructed around a strong infrastructural offering combined with an in-depth marketing and distribution strategy which is largely missing in the marketplace today. With the launch of a further two funds, the platform is on-track to become one of the most diversified in the industry.
