Salus Alpha is targeting acquisitions to grow market share

Monday, June 07, 2010
Opalesque Industry Update - Salus Alpha is looking for possible takeover targets. "We constantly look for opportunities," said Oliver Prock CEO of Salus Alpha, "Salus Alpha has grown a lot in the last few years; we have successfully established a number of unprecedented UCITS III hedge funds products - now we are ready for taking the next step. We are constantly looking for potential targets.”

Salus Alpha is known for innovation, ‘state of the art’ fund management and transparency. As world leader in the UCITS alternative investment sector, Salus Alpha has a large client base in Europe and Asia managing Multi Manager and Single Manager Products. With the introduction of the world wide first daily liquid UCITS III funds in all individual hedge fund strategies, Salus Alpha set the course for a new era of investment funds.

Salus Alpha’s innovative investment approach for Hedge Funds focuses on transparency, liquidity, consistent returns, capital protection and alpha/beta separation. Salus Alpha recognized the potential of UCITS Hedge Funds in 2002 and despite the complicated regulations Salus Alpha was able to offer the first regulated Hedge Funds already under UCITS I in 2003.

“I think the upcoming AIFM directive will play nicely for us since a lot of small hedge fund managers will simply give up. In our search for attractive takeover candidates we are not limited to Europe alone, we are looking both on-shore and off-shore for opportunities,” said Oliver Prock, “In fact we are looking worldwide for fund managers and companies as well as for individual fund vehicles for integrating them in our established and successful structures.” Corporate website: www.salusalpha.com
