Boston Partners, a provider of value equity investment products, has opened an office in London.
Joshua Jones, 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 USD14 billion in sub-advised UCIT assets under management, as well as USD2.2 billion in separately managed accounts across nine Europe-based institutional clients.
The office is located at 32 Cornhill in London, opposite The Royal Exchange.
Boston Partners’ three-circle approach uses a bottom-up analysis of valuation, fundamental quality and business momentum, in conjunction with a 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.
