US asset manager Artisan Partners has expanded its Ucits fund complex’ distribution making it available for sale in Spain.
The announcement – which follows the launch of the Artisan Global Discovery Fund – raises to 12 the number of countries where Artisan Partners’ Ucits offering is registered, already distributed in the UK, Finland, Italy, Norway, Sweden, Luxembourg, Germany, Switzerland, Singapore, the Netherlands, Belgium and from now also in Spain.
Artisan Partners’ managing director and head of EMEA distribution Andrew Marks, said: “We are delighted to add Spain to our growing list of Ucits fund country registrations. This registration reflects the firm’s gradual roll out of access to the Ucits fund complex and is in line with the expansion of our UCITS fund offerings and growth in AuM.”
The firm managed $113.7bn (€98.14bn) in assets as of 30 September 2017, from which $3.4bn (€2.9bn) were sourced by its Ucits fund complex domiciled in Ireland.
