Calamos Investments, a global investment management firm with more than 40 billion dollars in assets under management, has signed a strategic agreement with Unicorn Strategic Partners for the distribution of its UCITS investment solutions in the Latin American region.
In a press release, Unicorn revealed that it will serve both the retail and institutional business. Until now, Calamos covered the Latin American business under the guidance of Carlos Soriano, Head of US Offshore and Latam, who will now be responsible for the Unicorn relationship and will work directly with the team to continue to grow the business in the region.
Unicorn SP was launched at the end of 2017 and has become one of the premier fund distribution firms within the US Offshore and Latam market. They have a team of 16 professionals based in NYC, Miami, Buenos Aires, Montevideo and Santiago de Chile.
Florencia Bunge, partner in charge of the Latam retail business, commented that such an event is "a great milestone" for Unicorn SP, as it continues to enhance the list of high conviction strategies. In her view, these funds provide an integral and comprehensive solution to client’s investment portfolios in the region. “Our objective at Unicorn SP is to offer best-in-class strategies and avoiding any overlap between our menu of offerings at all times”, she added.
“Calamos is one of the most recognized firms in the industry for its Convertible strategy. Many clients in the region are familiar with Calamos and we are certain that they will greatly appreciate the daily coverage and presence of a local team”, Bunge concluded.
