What are UCITS?
Undertakings for Collective Investments in Transferable Securities are a type of authorised fund that satisfies the rules of the European UCITS Directive and are allowed to be marketed to the general public in any EU state. The UCITS brand is increasingly recognised globally as representing a universally appropriate investment vehicle. UCITS are not allowed to invest in direct property.
