Investment management firm Aristotle has launched Aristotle Atlantic Partners, a New York City-based investment management firm focused on large cap growth and large cap core domestic equity strategies.
The team at Aristotle Atlantic was formerly at Deutsche Asset Management and will be led by Joseph Benevento and Owen Fitzpatrick, supported by five equity research analysts.
Benevento, previously chief investment officer of the Americas at Deutsche Asset Management, where he oversaw equity, fixed income, multi-asset, currency and commodity strategies, joins Aristotle Atlantic as chief investment officer. He was a member of the Deutsche Asset Management, Americas asset management executive committee and Deutsche Bank’s global CIO executive committee and brings 27 years of portfolio management, risk management and industry experience to Aristotle.
Benevento provides management oversight and is also a managing director and a member of the executive leadership team at Aristotle.
Fitzpatrick, previously head of the US equity platform and lead portfolio manager for a number of Deutsche Asset Management equity strategies, is lead portfolio manager overseeing the large cap growth and large cap core domestic equity strategies at Aristotle Atlantic.
Thomas Hynes, Jr and Brendan O’Neill share in portfolio management responsibilities and also serve as research analysts. They are joined by Nicholas Daft, Walter Holman, and Jaimin Soni, all of whom also serve as research analysts. Benevento, Fitzpatrick and the majority of the team have worked together for approximately a decade.
“We are excited to welcome Joe, Owen and their analyst team into the Aristotle family. We carefully choose highly experienced and stable teams that have a demonstrated track record of providing investment benefits to clients. Joe, Owen and their analyst team fit our model perfectly. We believe the team will thrive in our carefully crafted environment,” says Richard S Hollander (pictured), chairman of Aristotle.
“We believe Aristotle is an excellent long-term partner for us,” says Fitzpatrick. “We like that it is an employee-owned firm where our incentives are completely aligned and where every colleague has a strong commitment to the firm’s clients. Aristotle’s past history of building successful teams, its stellar industry reputation, excellent infrastructure and passion for true, active equity investing is a perfect environment for our team, and we expect it to benefit our clients.”
“I look forward to being a member of the management team and instrumental in Aristotle’s continued global expansion,” says Benevento. “I strongly believe in Aristotle’s primary mission of helping clients achieve their investment goals. It is exciting to be part of such a robust and high quality organisation.”
