A number of portfolio managers and other employees currently at Castlegrove will become part of the Millennium Group, joining Catapult Capital Partners, a Millennium Group affiliate, in London.

The Millennium Group has approximately USD13bn in assets under management and is based in New York with offices in London, Beijing, Paris, Luxembourg, Singapore, Dallas, Texas and Greenwich, Connecticut.
