APS Funds SICAV p.l.c., an open-ended Malta UCITS collective investment scheme, has launched its fourth sub-fund, the APS Global Equity Fund.
This Fund endeavours to maximise total return to investors through investment in global equity securities. It will invest mainly in listed equities, but can also invest in other types of securities. It may also hold deposits and cash and selected Collective Investment Schemes (CISs) that are UCITS CISs and/or UCITS eligible CISs, Exchange Trade Funds and ADRs. The Fund will emphasise its investment allocation in developed markets such as European Union Members and Group of 10 Countries, focusing primarily in large-capitalisation and liquid companies.
Investors have the option to choose between accumulator and distributor shares with the latter pay a dividend every six months. There are also two ways to invest in the APS Global Equity Fund; firstly, through a savings plan, with the APS Global Equity Fund Accumulator Share Class, where a minimum deposit of €50 every month is required. The second option is a lump sum investment requiring a minimum subscription of €1,000.
Josef Portelli, Managing Director at ReAPS Asset Management Limited and Head of Investment Management at APS Bank plc commented: “This fund is an important addition to our product offering as it complements the existing APS Funds Range, while also adding a key new element to our product offering, giving our customers more opportunities to invest in different areas.”
