Solutions Capital Management SICAV p.l.c. is a collective investment scheme established as a multifund investment company with variable share capital (SICAV) with limited liability registered under the laws of Malta and licensed by the MFSA under the ISA. The Company qualifies as a ‘Maltese UCITS’ in terms of the UCITS Regulations. The Company is expected to consist of several Sub-Funds, each of which will be capitalised through the issue of one or more Classes of Investor Shares. The capital raised for each Sub-Fund will be invested in line with its investment objectives, subject to its investment policies and restrictions.
The Company is structured with segregated liability between its Sub-Funds pursuant to Maltese law and accordingly, the assets of one Sub-Fund will not generally be available to meet the liabilities of another. Under Maltese law, the creditors of that Sub-Fund whose liabilities exceed its assets shall have no claim or right of action against the assets of the other Sub-Funds and of the Company and the legal status of each SubFund as having segregated assets and liabilities from each of the other Sub-Funds should be respected in any proceedings under the Companies Act related to either the dissolution and consequential winding-up of the Company or its reconstruction. Furthermore such proceedings instituted under the Companies Act should apply in the same way to each Sub-Fund as though it were a distinct legal entity and with such modifications as are necessary in view of the fact that a Sub-Fund is not a company. Any such proceedings in relation to any one Sub-Fund should not have any effect on the assets of any other Sub-Fund or of the Company. The Directors will hold or cause to be held such separate accounts, records, statements and other documents as may be necessary to evidence the liabilities and assets of each Sub-Fund as distinct and separate from the assets and liabilities of all the other Sub-Funds. If classes of Investor Shares are issued in the same Sub-Fund, all assets and liabilities of each such class of Investor Shares would form part of the total assets and liabilities of the Sub-Fund of which such a class of Investor Shares forms part. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Company is a single legal entity which may operate or have assets held on its behalf or be subject to claims in other jurisdictions which may not necessarily recognise such segregation and in such circumstances the assets of one Sub-Fund may be exposed to the liabilities of another. There is no guarantee that the courts of any jurisdiction outside Malta will respect the limitations on liability associated with segregated account companies.
The Offer of Investor Shares in any Sub-Fund of the Company is governed by this Prospectus as the same may be amended and updated from time to time. This Prospectus is accompanied by an Offering Supplement issued in connection with the offer of Investor Shares in the Stable Return Fund (referred to as the “Present Sub-Fund”). The Investment Manager has also issued one or more KIIDs in respect of the Present Sub-Funds. When Investor Shares in other Sub-Funds are issued in the future, this Prospectus will be accompanied by an Offering Supplement for each new Sub-Fund. The Investment Manager will also issue one or more KIIDs in respect of new Sub-Funds.
The Company may issue new Classes of Investor Shares which may be constituted as segregated Sub-Funds or new Classes of Investor Shares within existing Sub-Funds, which may be designated in various currencies. The assets of the said Sub-Funds may be managed utilising different strategies or methodologies, or by investing in different markets. This Prospectus is to be at all times accompanied by an Offering Supplement for each Sub-Fund which is the subject of the Offering. Offerings in other Sub-Funds may be made again in the future. Information about SubFunds other than the ones referred to herein may be obtained from the Administrator.
Details of the specific investment objective and policies for each Sub-Fund will be formulated by the Directors at the time of creation of the Sub-Fund and will be stated in the related Offering Supplement. There is no guarantee that any of the investment objectives will be met
Shareholders should be aware that the Sub-Funds in the Company are designed to achieve particular economic targets related to the strategies stated for the particular Sub-Fund and implemented by that Sub-Fund.
