business and office concept - businessman and businesswoman holding puzzle pieces in office

LIMESTONE’s Luxembourg domiciled fund platforms cater for UCITS and all types of Alternative Investment Funds.

We offer both AIFM and UCITS hosted solutions via our Luxembourg domiciled Platforms.

Luxembourg based fund platforms:
UCITS platform: LS Fund
Alternative fund platforms: SIF

Our Client asset managers can focus on their core competence of portfolio management without getting involved in time-consuming risk management, valuation and administration tasks. Oversight functions can also be outsourced and transferred to an AIFM.

COST EFFICIENCY Reduced expenditure compared to setting up and managing own captive structure. Shared costs at umbrella level.
SPEED TO MARKET A new fund can be established within eight to ten weeks. The Platform, including its service providers, provide intensive support throughout the fund formation process, from planning through approval and all the way to on-boarding and launch.
OPERATIONAL KNOWLEDGE Cut your learning curve by tapping into Limestone combined know-how and expertise.
SHARPEN YOUR FOCUS Focus on your core competencies of portfolio management and asset growth, having your fund administered by Limestone Platform.

Service Models

Reducing the workload of suitably qualified managers

Portfolio Management Delegation Model

Delegation of Portfolio Management to the Fund Initiator or External Investment Manager (if duly licensed in his home jurisdiction)

This service will be particularly appealing to asset managers whose internal investment processes would be unable to cope with any additional workload. Some of these managers may find it preferable to focus solely on portfolio management – without needing to hold an UCITS or AIFM licence.

Hosting of an external manager is subject to in-depth scrutiny and assessment by Prime AIFM. Only asset managers who have the necessary expertise to withstand rigorous performance monitoring over the long term are selected. The manager must also undergo full operational due diligence to our complete satisfaction.

Portfolio Management Advisory Model

The core functions of Portfolio Management and Risk Management are performed by Limestone Platform whereas the client acts as initiator and advisor to the fund.

Other managers in turn are only set up as investment advisors anyway, meaning they cannot perform the function of portfolio manager on a contract basis. In these cases, they give investment recommendations to LIMESTONE (ManCo & Investment Manager).
