The Robus German Credit Opportunities Fund was established as a Luxembourg Special Fund (SICAF-SIF) and is only accessible to qualified investors and semi-professional investors. In November 2013, however, Robus also launched the Robus Mid-Market Value Bond Fund (UCITS IV) in collaboration with Hauck & Aufhäuser.
