Milltrust’s award-winning Emerging Markets Managed Accounts (EMMA) UCITS Platform, launched in July 2012 and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland, is the first and only Frontier and Emerging Markets dedicated platform. The Platform is specifically designed to offer investors a regulated, liquid, transparent and risk controlled, single custodian investment structure to access the best investment managers from across the developing markets.
The platform hosts a range of some of the world’s leading regional asset managers from the emerging markets, selected by Milltrust International for its clients and structured on the EMMA UCITS Platform under a single custodial framework (State Street). Each sub-fund forms an individual building block to a complete global emerging markets (GEMS) offering. Investors can build an Emerging Markets portfolio by investing across the EMMA UCITS Funds and view their investments as one aggregated portfolio 24/7 through our online platform portal.
The platform is also available as a white-labeled hosted platform solution to select frontier and emerging markets investment managers with their own client seeding commitments and seeking solutions to grow their businesses and/or position themselves in compliance with AIFMD regulations through a cost and time-efficient, EU-regulated platform structure.
The platforms serve as a first port of call for investors seeking regulated investments focused on the developing world. Its EU and Swiss Passport open doors to both institutional and retail allocations. Over 80% of publicly distributed funds in Asia are now UCITS regulated. A growing number of countries in Latin America and the Middle East have accepted UCITS as providing a stable, high quality, well-regulated investment product with significant levels of investor protection.
