Sturgeon has continued to domicile its start-up funds in Malta as self-managed funds which is still a cost effective route for Start-up funds, and albeit they do not have a full European Marketing Passport, they can market into all the countries allowed under National Private Placement as well as the US under the Sturgeon SEC License.

Sturgeon Ventures firm domiciles newest Malta fund

“Sturgeon Ventures is to domicile its newest fund in Malta while another awaits regulatory approval as the London-based regulatory incubator firm continues to demonstrate its faith in the island.
This week, it will launch the Clerkenwell Matterhorn Fund investing in real estate investment trusts and property development companies. It is aimed at high net worth investors, family offices and institutions in the UK and Europe.
The fund joins Sturgeon Ventures’ small but diverse collection of funds domiciled in Malta since 2010, predominantly professional investor funds, which managing partner Seonaid Mackenzie hopes will tell their “Malta story” as they grow.
Established in 1998 as an investment management advisory firm to a single family in the UK, Sturgeon Ventures began incubating firms in 2004 and moved in to investment management in 2006. As a regulatory incubator, it enables start-up managers to sit under its wing as it shoulders the regulatory responsibility.”
