New UK market entrant Havelock London has appointed Link Asset Services as the Authorised Fund Manager (AFM) for the launch of its inaugural fund later this year.
Havelock London intends to combine traditional investment management with modern data science and technology. It will focus on a small number of well-understood investments, and identify long-term value opportunities as a result of extensive data analysis and a disciplined investment selection process.
Link’s appointment as AFM to Havelock London follows a series of new wins for Link’s fund solutions team following its sale to Australia’s Link Group in November 2017 and cements its position as the UK’s leading independent Authorised Fund Manager.
Peter Hugh-Smith, Managing Director, fund solutions at Link Asset Services, says: “We are delighted to be appointed as AFM to Havelock London – an appointment that recognises our market leading expertise in supporting innovative market entrants. Havelock London brings an exciting investment approach to the market and we look forward to supporting, and assisting Havelock London in achieving their goals.
Matthew Beddall (pictured), CEO and founder of Havelock London, adds: “The explosion in the amount of data available to investment managers has the potential, when used properly, to revolutionise the way we analyse companies, invest money and report to customers. We are excited to be working with Link Asset Services as a key partner in our efforts to achieve this.”
