Capital Strategies Partners, an independent securities firm specialising in the representation of international asset management companies in the South European and LatAm market, has been chosen by global investment manager Investec Asset Management, to be its selected independent distribution partner in Spain, Portugal and Andorra.
Investec Asset Management is a specialist provider of active investment products and services to institutional and individual investors. Established in South Africa in 1991, the firm has been built from a small start-up into a successful international business, now managing over 117 billion dollars.
The firm provides investment solutions to clients across a range of global and emerging market asset classes. This global approach, combined with a footprint in both emerging and developed markets, has characterised the evolution of Investec Asset Management’s strategies.
Capital Strategies Partners has a 16-year track record of representing international asset management companies, interested in further developing the markets in which they operate. According to Daniel Rubio, CEO of Capital Strategies, "The launch of Investec Asset Management in Spain provides investors with access to a new suite of successful global, regional and especially emerging market solutions". He also stated that Investec’s investment philosophies include "intelligent" diversification metrics and bottom-up security selection, which provide a framework for portfolios, and which may help to support more attractive risk / return characteristics for investors.
Stef Bogaars, Head of the Europe Client Group at Investec Asset Management said, ‘This partnership is exciting to us as it allows us to offer a broad range of investment solutions to a new and sophisticated investor base. We look forward to working with a firm that is able to provide the highest standard of client services alongside insight and access in this market.’
