Atlantis Investment Management has launched three new Asian funds in its Dublin umbrella the Atlantis International Umbrella Fund (AIUF).
The new funds are Atlantis Asian Opportunities Fund, Atlantis Asian Smaller Companies Fund and Atlantis Japan Opportunities Fund, launched with existing institutional support in October. The new funds have already reached $73 million.
Peter Irving, CEO at Atlantis, said: "We are opening the funds to all professional investors and their advisers. Asian stock markets" high growth prospects and low valuations are appealing to global investors."
The Atlantis Japan Opportunities Fund is managed by Taeko Setaishi, who who has worked in Atlantis" Tokyo team since 1996. Setaishi is actively managing a portfolio of equities focusing on secular growth stocks with reasonable valuations. Many of the companies in the portfolio are listed on the over-the-counter (OTC) markets, where Japan"s more dynamic businesses can be found and where Setaishi has established a successful track record.

The Atlantis Asian Smaller Companies Fund is also managed by Tony Jordan, and invests actively in Asian companies whose market capitalisations are less than $500m.
Atlantis plans to introduce a 3% minimum front-end charge to new investors in the Atlantis Asian Recovery Fund, to slow inflows into the fund.
