Amiral Gestion to hard-close European small-mid cap fund
French boutique Amiral Gestion has announced it will suspend new subscriptions to its Sextant PME fund, that invests in European small and mid caps.
The hard-close of the fund will be effective once its assets under management will reach €250m. As of 26 June 2017, AuM of the Sextant PME fund amounted to €220m.
The manager said it wants to ensure best conditions for the management of the fund and argued that the management of liquidity in the European small-mid cap universe was a key factor in generating alpha.
There will be no change in the strategy implemented in the fund which relies on a rigorous stock-picking process.
Amiral Gestion has around €3.2bn of assets under management and considers establishing a Sicav.
