BOSTON & LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Boston Partners, a premier provider of value equity investment products, today announced the opening of its London office.
Joshua Jones, CFA, a Portfolio Manager on Boston Partners Global and International products, will be leading the investment team operating out of the London office, while William Pawson, a senior product specialist, will oversee distribution.
The London office will provide closer access for clients of Boston Partners located in the European market and closer proximity to European companies for Jones. The new office will help to support over $14 billion in sub-advised UCIT assets under management, as well as $2.2 billion in separately managed accounts across nine Europe-based institutional clients.
“We’re pleased to announce the official opening of our London office,” said Joshua Jones. “As clients seek better visibility to understand Boston Partners’ investment edge, our proximity to key European markets will help clients recognise the value of the firm’s tested, ‘three-circle’ approach to active management.”
The office is located at 32 Cornhill in London, opposite The Royal Exchange.
Boston Partners’ three-circle approach utilises a bottom-up analysis of valuation, fundamental quality and business momentum, in conjunction with a robust and proprietary quantitative screening process across the entire universe of global equities, to construct a diversified portfolio. Last year, Senior Portfolio Manager Christopher Hart, who manages the Robeco Boston Partners Global Premium Equities Fund, was recognised as Fund Manager of the Year, Global Equity, as part of Morningstar’s European Fund Manager of the Year Awards.
