Winton Capital registers as AIFM in Ireland - filing

LONDON (Reuters) - British hedge fund firm Winton Capital has registered as an alternative investment fund manager (AIFM) in Ireland, the Irish central banks’s website showed.

Authorisation was given on Jan. 2 and the website was updated March 5.

The move comes as a number of investment management companies in Britain enact plans to ensure they can sell to European Union clients after Britain exits from the bloc.

A source with direct knowledge of Winton’s Irish move said it was part of the company’s Brexit planning. A spokesman for Winton declined to comment when contacted by Reuters.
