 «Nous avions lancé en juin 2011 ce fonds Ucits 3, qui réplique à l'identique notre fonds offshore, mais, avec une liquidité quotidienne, les nombreux investisseurs intéressés restaient bloqués à cause du ratio d'emprise, explique Lionel Melka, l'un des trois associés. Cet accompagnement va débloquer la situation et nous espérons désormais doubler la taille de ce fonds rapidement.»
