NewSmith chooses UCITS

NewSmith Asset Management decided to launch its global long/short equity hedge fund using the UCITS structure because it offers investors increased transparency, liquidity and a high level of regulatory oversight.

NewSmith Global Absolute Return Fund launched in September 2010. It is one of four sub funds under an Irish-domiciled umbrella, which includes a long-only version of the global long/short equities fund and an emerging markets UCITS hedge fund.
