Single Manager UCITS

Created in 2012, our UCITS range of single managers provides access to industry leading boutique asset managers. Our range will ultimately look to cover key investment themes across asset classes, on both a long-only and long-short basis.

The Alma Capital range of single manager funds is based on 3 pillars:

1. Identify talented fund managers with a convincing track record and significant AUM who are not yet available in a fund format for European investors
2. Provide the fund vehicle, UCITS risk reporting, administrative services and distribution network
3. Proprietary sales coverage for the key markets within Europe to grow the asset base of the funds

Private Assets

The Alma Capital range of private asset funds includes equity funds and specialized insurance private debt funds.

Private Debt – PriDe (Private Insurance Debt)

PriDe (Private Insurance Debt) is a private debt program invested in subordinated bonds issued by small and medium European insurance companies.

With the Solvency 2 regulations, all European insurers must increase their regulatory capital base. Small and medium-sized insurance companies have very limited access to capital markets or bank financing.

PriDe offers these small and mid-sized insurance companies alternative financing in order to reinforce their regulatory capital. PriDe’s aim is to finance 50 European insurance companies.


Private Equity – The Massinissa Fund

The Massinissa private equity fund takes majority stakes in small and medium sized private companies situated predominantly in Morocco, and develops these companies both organically and through acquisition.

This fund was launched in 2008 with the key support of the European Investment Bank, alongside French and Moroccan institutional investors.

The fund’s management company is Almamed, a subsidiary of Alma Capital based in Casablanca.
