Swiss manager RAM Active Investments has moved to open an office in London to support its growth as a business into regions such as the Nordics and tap into the large pool of potential talent that is based in Europe’s financial capital.
The manager, which has over $4.1bn under management, has also timed the office opening to the third anniversary of its two systemic sub-funds Long/Short European Equities and Long/Short Emerging Markets Equities. The strategies currently claim AUM of some €130m and €120m respectively.
The 36 month track record feeds into the industry trend which sees many investors requiring such a period of performance before investing.
Thomas de Saint-Seine, CEO and head of Equities, said: “We are committed to be close to our clients and grow alongside them. Therefore we have decided to open an office in London, which we consider as one of the most prestigious places for asset management in Europe. At the same time we are very proud of the consistent performance of our Ucits long/short funds over the last three years.”
