The deal sees Amati take on management of the Noble AIM VCT and the CF Noble smaller companies fund. There will be no change to the day-to-day investment management arrangements of both funds.
Amati CEO Paul Jourdan has managed the AIM VCT since its launch in 2004 and is seeking to raise an additional £14m for the fund.
The firm also plans to add scale to the business through a broader range of investment products.
Amati Global Partners is a new entity formed by Paul Jourdan and Douglas Lawson.
Jourdan says: “We’re tremendously excited to have completed this acquisition. We have ambitious plans to build Amati both in terms of expanding our two existing funds and launching new products in the future.
“At a time when many investors are looking for an alternative to pensions for tax efficient investment, the Noble AIM VCT will appeal to those who believe that now is a great time to invest in quoted smaller companies with global exposure but with a strong defence against a double-dip recession.”
