JO Hambro Capital Management (JOHCM) has announced the launch of the JOHCM US small/mid cap Equity Fund.
The launch follows the appointment of portfolio managers Thorsten Becker, Arun Daniel and Vincent Rivers and trader Eric Yi earlier this year.
Gavin Rochussen, CEO, said:”This fund increases the currently limited options for UK-based investors to invest in US-listed equities via an actively-managed fund. Many investors are underweight small and mid-cap US stocks, an asset class where, with the right investment expertise, the trailblazers of corporate America can be found.”
The US SMID team takes a sector-based approach to investment and the portfolio is concentrated in 45-60 positions, the fund has a capacity of $5bn. Domiciled in Ireland, it adds to JOHCM’s Dublin-registered OEIC fund range, the team is based in Boston, Massachusetts, where JOHCM recently opened its second investment office in the United States
