JO Hambro Capital Management plans to launch another global equity fund and two equity funds investing in Asia excluding Japan later this year.
JOHCM chief executive officer Gavin Rochussen says the boutique will also hire a management team to run the new global equity fund.
“The big focus for us is to diversify the group,” Rochussen says. JOHCM has traditionally focussed on the UK and Europe, but recently expanded its emerging markets offering.
Earlier this year, the boutique acquired Metis Capital Management, an investment boutique specialising in Asian stocks. JOHCM is also retaining two of its managers for two funds investing in Asian equities excluding Japan.
JOHCM already offers the global select and the international select funds. Rochussen says he would like to add another global equities fund to the range.
The news comes a day before the global emerging markets opportunities fund, managed by James Syme and Paul Wimborne, officially launches.
It is the second emerging markets product in JOHCM’s fund rage since the launch of the emerging markets fund, managed by Emery Brewer and Ivo Kovachev, in April last year.
In February, the group launched the all Europe dynamic growth fund.
The three new launches are scheduled for September and they will sit under the Dublin-domiciled Oeic
