ABN Amro Asset Management passed the £1bn under management mark last
week, just five years after it launched into the UK market.
The Dutch bank began its UK campaign in 1996 when it acquired Carrington
Pembroke, and has seen assets double in the past year alone.
Its success comes on the back of a strong year for star UK growth fund
manager Nigel Thomas. The £530m fund was one of this year's biggest
Isa season sellers. The growth fund is currently third out of 245 funds in
the UK All Companies sector over three years.
Thomas recently quit the management of Solus UK special situations fund to
launch ABN Amro's own equivalent – the ABN Amro UK select opportunities
