East Capital unveils Russia fund

Russian dollsEast Capital has launched an alternative investment product, the East Capital Russia Domestic Growth fund.

 The fund is domiciled in Luxembourg and open to institutional and qualified investors.

The aim of the fund is to create a concentrated portfolio of between 10 and 20 different listed companies with a market capitalisation of above $500 million (€505.2 million).

The fund will operate across all sectors and invest in securities East Capital considers to be undervalued.

East Capital Explorer AB, a entity listed in Sweden, has committed to invest €15 million in the first closing of the fund.
