This article was first published in the HFMWeek Special Report, UCITS 2015.

Adam Donoghue and Aaron Mulcahy of Maples and Calder discuss the reasons behind the growth in alternative UCITS funds and what the sector might have in store for the future.

Although in absolute terms it is still a niche subset within the overall UCITS market, latest estimates place the AUM of alternative UCITS in the region of €305.3bn as at the end of 2014, representing a year-on-year growth of nearly 30% (exponentially higher than growth rates of more traditional UCITS).
