Isola Fullerton Global Private Alpha Fund Secures Anchor Investors for First Close

HONG KONG, July 8, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Isola Capital and Mantis Funds are excited to announce that the Isola Fullerton Global Private Alpha SP (the “Fund” or “IFGPA”) has secured its anchor investors for a first close.

The Fund, which is sub-advised by Fullerton Fund Management, provides a diversified portfolio of leading global private equity, venture capital and private credit strategies with the objective to generate consistent and repeatable returns.

The anchor investors include Sun Hung Kai & Co. Ltd., a leading Australian single family office, and QuarterFive which is an Australian multi-family office advisory firm. All the anchor investors are highly experienced in private alternatives with exposure across Asia Pacific and globally.

Isola Capital has partnered with Mantis Funds to create a feeder fund that provides access to Australian investors to global best-of-breed and best-in-class private alternative funds.

“As private market investment specialists representing institutional capital, we are dedicated to capturing global opportunities by leveraging our deep knowledge and extensive networks. We are delighted to have the backing of stellar anchor investors. Their familiarity with the private markets landscape, and commitment to our global private alpha strategy demonstrates faith in our capabilities. We look forward to delivering compelling outcomes to our new investors.” said Mark Yuen, Chief Business Development Officer at Fullerton Fund Management.

“During these volatile markets with the stress of higher interest rates, the clear value-add from top-quartile private alternative strategies will shine through. True alpha generation will be consistently created by the top asset managers who have institutionalized their process to weather economic storms and generate superior returns above the median. IFGPA is a timely solution for investors that are seeking to ensure the core part of their private alternatives allocation are comprised of deep-conviction top quartile strategies that have stood the test of time. The IFGPA fund series will ensure that investors no longer need to struggle to construct their core private alternative across vintages, as it will be a repeatable consistent solution to diversify each vintage across all the key private alternative asset classes with top performing strategies, which allows investors to supplement their portfolio with their own self-selection of deals and funds.” said Anthony Chan, CEO, Isola Capital.

“Family offices in Asia are increasingly looking to private markets as a means to access the real economy and diversify their portfolios. We are delighted to collaborate with Isola Capital and Fullerton Fund Management in participating in more private market strategies globally.” said Marcella Lui, Head of Investment Solutions at Sun Hung Kai & Co. Ltd.

“Australian wholesale investors and their advisors have been crying out for a better core private alternative solution. Existing diversified options accessible in Australia tend to be too concentrated in a particular strategy or sponsor to serve as a cornerstone holding for investors making their first foray into the space. We are delighted to have partnered with the Isola Capital and Fullerton Fund Management to launch an Australia wholesale unit trust feeder into IFGPA. The feeder, to be launched in July, is a closed-end fund with extremely competitive fees and institutional grade infrastructure. Investors in the Fund will benefit from the scale of IFGPA not only in accessing tier one private fund opportunities but also to co-investment opportunities” said Damien Hatfield, Partner and Head of Distribution at Mantis Funds.

The Fund provides exposure to leading private market strategies through a carefully curated portfolio managed by Isola Capital with Fullerton Fund Management as a sub-advisor, featuring high quality global private equity, venture capital and private credit strategies.
