Boutique builder becomes partner in EM star’s firm

Boutique builder becomes partner in EM star’s firm

Pacific Asset Management has entered into a partnership with Citywire + rated Matt Linsey’s emerging market (EM) equity boutique, the two groups have announced.

Pacific AM is the asset management arm of Pacific Investments, which was formed by Sir John Beckwith and has invested in several fund management businesses, such as Liontrust, Thames River Capital and Nevsky Fund.

Under the new arrangement, Pacific AM will build on its experience in the EM equity market to aid the growth and development of Linsey’s group, North of South Capital, which is based in London.

Pacific AM said the deal is also designed to help extend its reach in the institutional and wholesale markets by becoming a partner in North of South Capital, which will also support the development of active management.

Linsey runs a hedge fund as well as a Ucits-compliant version of his North of South fund under a mandate with Swiss group GAM, which sits within the global emerging markets equity sector.

This fund currently sits 24th out of an 847-strong peer group on a 12-month total return basis, having returned 26.7% in US dollars to the end of April 2017, while the average manager in the sector returned 16.9% over the same period.
