J O Hambro: Our Institutional presence
Understanding and meeting the investment and client service needs of institutional clients is an important focus for J O Hambro Capital Management. We have a significant institutional business, winning segregated and pooled mandates from institutional clients in the United Kingdom, United States, mainland Europe, the Middle East and Australia. Institutional assets currently account for broadly 50% of total assets under management, and we anticipate further growth in this area.
A nimble team of experienced, institutional-focused client professionals
Our dedicated institutional sales and client relations team, has extensive experience of the requirements of institutional investors, while our non-bureaucratic nature makes for clear decision-making and speedy client communication.
High alpha, high conviction investment strategies
Delivered through our small, autonomous investment teams, our investment emphasis is on providing high alpha-generating, high conviction, long-only equities strategies using robust, consistent investment processes that avoid style drift. Our institutional clients are currently invested across five asset classes: Global/International, Emerging Markets, European, UK and Asian equities.
J O Hambro has a long-standing policy of managing investment capacity in order to preserve investment performance. When launching an investment strategy, we agree with the fund management team the capacity for that strategy. While remaining pragmatic, we are committed to the principle of capacity management and have declined new mandates where we felt increased assets might compromise performance for existing clients.
Depending upon mandate size, institutional investors can access our investment strategies through segregated accounts or, where appropriate, via our funds domiciled in the UK, Ireland or the US.
