Morgan Stanley and PSAM Launch UCITS III Fund

Monday, August 16, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - Morgan Stanley (NYSE: MS) announced that it has launched its first UCITS III Fund on the Firm’s FundLogic platform managed by an alternative manager. This fund will be managed by P.Schoenfeld Asset Management LP (PSAM) and will offer exposure to a global event-driven investment strategy.

Commenting on the new fund launch, Shahzad Sadique, Executive Director and Head of FundLogic at Morgan Stanley said, “we are seeing a huge level of interest from investors to access alternative asset manager expertise through UCITS Funds and are delighted that PSAM has partnered with Morgan Stanley. We are currently seeking regulatory approval for a number of funds managed by leading alternative asset managers and look forward to launching more UCITS funds on FundLogic in the next few months.”

“Our UCITS fund will provide investors with access to a global event-driven strategy which includes mergers and acquisitions, stressed and distressed credit and special situations strategies, while providing them with greater liquidity and transparency – attributes we believe will make the fund attractive to new types of investors,” commented Peter Schoenfeld, Chairman and CEO of PSAM. “We have a long relationship with Morgan Stanley dating back to PSAM’s inception in 1997 and it is the logical partner for us on this exciting new product given the strength of its platform and the track record of success we have working together.”
