The asset management arm of the American bank has rolled out the Global Focused Equity Fund and US Small Cap Value Fund.
The global fund is managed by Dale Winner, leader of the EverKey Global Equity team. The fund invests in up to 30 companies located in no fewer than three countries, which may include the United States. The management team seeks to beat the MSCI All Country World Index using bottom-up approach based on fundamental research.
The US small cap offering is managed by the Stageline Value Equity team, led by Garth Nisbet, Craig Pieringer, and Jeff Goverman. It invests in US companies that have a market cap of less than $2bn at the time of purchase. The management team practices bottom-up fundamental analysis based on a ‘value/contrarian investment philosophy.’
“We are pleased to offer two new solutions to our international clients, a global equity fund with a concentrated portfolio and a US small-cap fund. Both funds are led by veteran managers and provide differentiated market exposure,” said managing director, international business development, Ludger Peters (pictured).
Both new funds are available in the United Kingdom, Luxembourg, Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland. In the months ahead, the firm intends to register the funds in Hong Kong and South Korea.
