Edinburgh-headquartered investment manager Kames Capital has registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission to make its debut in the US.
The entry will enable Kames Capital to offer US investors access to two of its global equity strategies: the Kames Global Equity Income strategy and the Kames Global Sustainable Equity Strategy, that will be potentially followed by other strategies, already identified as having strong demand from US’ investors.
Aegon Asset Management -Kames Capital’s affiliate in the US- will provide sales and marketing support to Kames Capital.
Kames’ launch into the US market follows some expansions recently announced by the company, both into continental Europe (with presence in 16 countries) and into LatAm including the partnership the company recently signed with the investment firm HMC Capital to enter Chilean market.
Kames Capital’s chief executive officer Martin Davis said: “Our entry into the US market is another significant milestone in the development of Kames Capital as we look to broaden and deepen the distribution of some of our best products and strategies across new markets.
“The agreement for our sister affiliated company to distribute our strategies in the US is also a positive step as Kames and AAM look to bring their successful capabilities to our customers wherever they are located.”
