The SAM Capital Ucits fund will be the second fund launched by SEB Prime Solutions.

The portfolio will replicate its off-shore European large-cap equity trading fund, the SAM Capital Equity Opportunity fund. Once launched, the new fund will employ a short-term equity strategy, trading large-cap European stocks and index futures.

Dietmar Schmitt (pictured), the founder and chief investment officer of SAM Capital, says the new addition will comfortably sit within the Ucits rules.

The fund will operate based on daily quantitative screenings of 300-400 European large- and mega-cap names and futures. (article continues below)

When selecting holdings for the fund, the managers will take into consideration technical analysis as well as short- and long-term trends. Trades typically last 1-10 business days.

SEB Prime Solutions is an umbrella Sicav platform for alternative investment managers’ Ucits funds. The platform offers the necessary legal structure, risk management and administration services to facilitate the launch and marketing of these funds.
