Advantages of our Fund Structure • Investing

in one of our open ended investment funds offers a cost-effective method of gaining a diversified exposure to a wider range of assets than would be efficient in a typical managed account.

• Our

fund range offers an extensive assortment of opportunities at an individual fund level and, moreover, if required our clients can combine exposures in a number of funds to achieve a tailor made asset allocation to meet particular requirements in terms of performance and risk levels.

• The

Private Office is small enough to be able to deliver meticulous and genuine personal attention to all of our clients. This level of service extends to our collective investment schemes.

• Unlike many institutions offering fund management services, The Private Office

will always consider the client’s wider position and objectives to ensure that the correct fund or selection of funds are selected.

Why Malta? •

Our SICAV is domiciled in Malta, which offers the best features of a traditional offshore centre, like the Cayman Islands, with the advantages of full membership of the European Union.

• Non-Maltese

investors in the fund are exempt from both capital gains and

income tax. • Malta

has a strong regulatory regime and a well established reputation for professional functionaries and service providers while at the same time is extremely competitive on a cost basis when compared to other popular fund domiciles such as Luxembourg or Dublin.

• Professional

Investor Fund (PIF) status gives more flexibility to the fund manager to manage the fund without the many restrictions and requirements imposed upon retail funds.


Our Funds • We

have selected a diversified portfolio of compelling and specialist funds to appeal to our High Net Worth private clients and intuitional investors alike.

• It

is envisaged that the range of funds will expand in response to client demand and evolving financial markets.

• Funds

within this SICAV can be utilised either individually, or in combination as part of a broader asset allocation strategy. They cover a wide spectrum of risk return profiles and include equities, fixed income, cash/money market and foreign exchange trading. We also have two specialist funds available in the areas of Global Natural Resources and managed volatility.
