PearlTree UCITS Platform


  • An established Umbrella UCITS SICAV (PearlTree UCITS Fund) with multiple Dedicated Sub-Funds (“DSF”)
  • Providing dedicated UCITS DSF to investment managers within which they launch their strategy
  • Our “rent-a-UCITS-compartment” solution allows fund promoters to quickly set-up and launch a bespoke regulated UCITS DSF under our existing UCITS platform
  • Open-ended
  • EU-harmonized Investment Fund
  • Regulated by the CSSF
  • Offers a turnkey distribution led solution for fund managers looking to target UCITS retail investors
  • The client may act as the Portfolio Manager or be appointed as the Investment Advisor of its UCITS DSF (subject to satisfactory due diligence review)
  • The UCITS platform provides a cost-efficient solution, with each DSF taking advantage of a predefined fee schedule covering all costs (Management Company, Depository, Administrator, Audit)
  • Expense allocation is depending on assets under management and strategy
  • The PearlTree fees are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and are adapted to the size and strategy of the sub-fund (i.e. asset class, frequency of NAV, volume of transactions, etc.)
  • The UCITS platform ensures quick time-to-market as the core UCITS structure has already been approved by the regulator (CSSF) who only needs to review the new sub-fund prior to launch
  • Particularly cost-effective for managers who require a full suite of UCITS fund services along with legal and infrastructure support
  • A simple process compared to launching a dedicated structure
