GM Media Ventures Fund

Investment manager Global Merces has launched the GM Media Ventures Fund, which will provide exposure to global investments aimed at developing, distributing and commercialising media assets.

It will invest in up to nine major investments, focusing on early and growth stages of media assets around the world.

"The fund invests in the creation of content from concept to completion and commercial realisation. The fund also invests in technology that supports the creation, distribution or monetisation of content and audiences," Global Merces said in a statement.

The fund is considering early stage investments in an animated children's series, commissioned in Australia and scheduled for global distribution; a gaming company; and a developer of virtual reality content.

Wholesale investors can invest directly into the fund, and retail investors can invest through the Global Merces Access Fund.
