Morgan Stanley launches Asia UCITS fund with Dalton Investments

Monday, July 22, 2013
Opalesque Industry Update - Morgan Stanley announced the launch of a new fund, the MS Dalton Asia Pacific UCITS Fund (the “Fund”), under its FundLogic Alternatives plc umbrella. The Fund provides exposure to Dalton’s Asian equity capabilities and will invest across the Asia Pacific region in a long/short format. The FundLogic platform currently has more than $1bn in assets under management and, with this latest addition, now offers UCITS investors a diversified range of 20 funds. Longchamp Asset Management has been appointed as the sole distributor of the Fund.

“We are excited to provide UCITS investors access to Dalton’s expertise in Asian equities. Dalton complements our existing offering by extending our coverage of the Asia Pacific Region”, said Stephane Berthet, Head of the FundLogic Alternatives Platform, at Morgan Stanley. Dalton Investments LLC was established by James Rosenwald and is a recognised authority in Pacific Rim investing, with over 30 years of investment experience. It currently has over $1.2bn in assets under management within Asia.

James Rosenwald commented: “The FundLogic Platform aligns with Dalton’s interests – providing a first class service with its stringent risk management and operational expertise. We are delighted by this opportunity to partner with Morgan Stanley, in launching the MS Dalton Asia Pacific UCITS Fund.”

David Armstrong, President and Founder of Longchamp Asset Management, added: “Dalton has an exceptional strength in the Asian markets. Their experienced, multi-cultural, on the-ground investment team gives them an edge in alpha generation. The Strategy emphasizes value investments: investing with long-term, disciplined, rigorous bottom-up analysis. Dalton looks to go long deep value opportunities, with strong alignment of interest, and short companies with declining catalysts. They prioritise the management of risk, concentrating on capital preservation, whilst focusing on a longer term investment perspective.”
