Investment Services UK launches Jersey-based fund


Investment Services UK, a London-based fixed income specialist focused on emerging markets, has launched a fund seeking enhanced returns through access to a portfolio of fixed income securities principally throughout the emerging markets.

Known as the Amrah Global Opportunities Fund, it is domiciled in Jersey and is the brainchild of Investment Services UK’s managing director Ram Melwani. 

“We have deliberated over the decision to progress into branded funds of our own and took the plunge at the beginning of the year when for us the time was right. In the aftermath of the 2008 global credit crunch, valuations for many quality, growing economies have become compelling, coupled with a historically low global interest rate environment has brought about some great investment opportunities, which typically come about once or twice in ones lifetime. The increasing number of emerging markets opportunities helped encourage us to move forward more quickly but the decision was based on lengthy research and several years useful experience,” says Melwani.

The process of establishing the fund structure in Jersey was managed jointly by Daniel O’Connor of law firm Carey Olsen and Daniel McKeon of Sanne Trust, the fund’s appointed administrator and registrar. 

Vernon Breese, new business development director at Sanne, says: “The launch of the Amrah fund marks a new chapter in ISUL’s relationship with Jersey as well as with the Sanne Group and Carey Olsen. We wish Ram and his team every success.”
