SEB platform hosts SAM Capital Ucits fund


SAM Capital Partners, the European equities investment specialist, will launch a Ucits fund via SEB Prime Solutions.

SAM Capital selected SEB’s new one stop shop offering to market its Ucits fund, which replicates its offshore European large cap equity trading fund.

SEB Prime Solutions is an umbrella Sicav platform for alternative investment managers’ Ucits funds which was launched in mid-September 2010. The platform offers the necessary legal structure, risk management and administration services to facilitate the launch and marketing of these funds.

SAM Capital expects to benefit from increased institutional interest in onshore alternative investment solutions which fit within the Ucits regulatory framework.

The SAM Capital Equity Opportunity Fund was launched in September 2007 and uses a short-term equity trading strategy, trading in large-cap European stocks. The fund uses equities and equity index futures to generate returns from short-term market trends in a portfolio based on the most liquid European large-cap stocks.

Magnus Ward, UK head of prime brokerage at SEB, says: "SEB Prime Solutions is a one stop shop solution for fund managers to launch Ucits funds quickly and efficiently. The offering in combination with the award winning prime brokerage service from SEB enables the fund manager to focus on generating returns for their investors whilst keeping operational costs low. SAM Capital’s decision to choose SEB shows that our model, with the backing of the bank’s resources, is an attractive proposition. We look forward to working together with SAM Capital in a growing market."

Dietmar Schmitt, founder and chief investment officer at SAM Capital, adds: "We have thought about launching a Ucits fund for some time now since our trading strategy sits very comfortably within the Ucits rules. We selected SEB’s platform on the basis of our strong, established relationship with them, their strength of reputation with European investors and their ability to enable us to reduce operational costs when replicating our SAM Capital Equity Opportunities Fund within Ucits."
