Emerging market stalwart Matt Linsey is back in the Ucits market with a re-launched version of his North of South EM Equity fund.
Linsey previously ran the fund for six years on mandate from GAM before the Swiss group opted to terminate the partnership in June.
This saw the GAM North of South Equity fund renamed as the GAM Star Emerging Equity fund and handed to Tim Love.
This new incarnation will be launched in conjunction with Pacific Asset Management, which entered into a partnership agreement with Linsey’s boutique, North of South, in May.
Pacific AM said the initial deal with North of South was designed to broaden its appeal to wider markets. Linsey has run a hedge fund version of this flagship approach since December 2004.
The new approach will formally launch in November 2017 and be called the Pacific North of South EM All Cap Equity fund. It will follow the same process Linsey and his team have always used.
