Single-manager funds now ready to launch in Italy

It is three years since Italy passed a law – the Fondi Speculativi – to allow hedge funds to be registered onshore, making it the first European country after Ireland to do so. But it was not until late last month that the first onshore single-manager hedge funds were prepared to launch. Regulatory problems and a minimum investment level of E1 million were blamed for the delay. Even now, the future of the alternative investment sector in Italy remains unclear.
