DUBLIN, 7th April 2017 – Ronit Capital LLP and ML Capital are pleased to formally announce the launch of the Ronit Global Opportunities UCITS Fund, a Global Long/Short strategy focused on liquid Emerging Markets and the European periphery hosted on the MontLake UCITS Platform. MontLake is a leading independent platform for UCITS funds that provides investors with access to a range of liquid, transparent and regulated investment products domiciled in Dublin.

The Ronit Global Opportunities UCITS Fund seeks long term absolute returns by trading a fundamental, bottom-up strategy with macro overlays, to capitalize on Global Opportunities with a focus on Emerging Markets and the European periphery. The investment strategy will only invest across a liquid capital structure and is expected to have an equity bias over time. The team believe that fundamental research coupled with a sensible understanding of the risk/reward and idiosyncratic risks can generate attractive returns over time and across market cycles.

Ronit Capital LLP believes that historically too much attention was placed on macro analysis in the regions they invest in whilst there are significant opportunities within more micro focused strategies. Emerging Markets are no longer a uniform block as countries and sectors are impacted by different developments in differing ways. Many Emerging market stories today are much less dependent on the events or decisions in developed countries. Additionally, for many significant companies today, Emerging Markets represent material areas for growth and profitability and Ronit is uniquely suited and positioned to take advantage of these trends. By employing a fundamental based micro approach Ronit can capitalise on both the Long and Short opportunities.  

Speaking today, Edward Misrahi, CIO of Ronit Capital said: “We recognise MontLake as a best-in-class platform, offering exclusive access to a wide range of selective investors. We are delighted to partner with ML Capital at an exciting time when the popularity and demand for UCITS alternative investment funds continues to rise”.

Cyril Delamare, CEO of ML Capital commented“We are pleased that Ronit have selected the MontLake UCITS Platform to launch the Ronit Global Opportunities UCITS Fund, we have every confidence that the team’s proven emerging markets track record and their ability to invest in both Long and Short equity will better enable them to strengthen returns regardless of Emerging Market conditions. This fund is a welcomed addition to the UCITS Universe and we are excited by its growth and potential.”
