Jimenez joins advisory board of First Avenue Investment Management

RELATED TOPICS​

José Luis Jimenez, chief executive of March Gestión and chairman of the Group of Boutique Asset Managers (GBAM), has joined the international advisory board of First Avenue Asset Management.

The move signals the intention of First Avenue’s CEO and former HSBC/Investec manager Hlelo Giyose to provide the boutique with greater international insights in order to make headway in the highly competitive asset management space in South Africa.
 
The move also signs early intention by Giyose to offer investment opportunities in South Africa to a wider international audience.
 
The advisory board consists of four experienced individuals with skills in running international businesses. 
 
Jimenez was instrumental in forming the Group of Boutique Asset Managers just over a year ago. The network of 15 boutiques, based as far afield as Santiago and Hong Kong with around half from Europe, sees collaboration as a way of tackling competition of larger international fund mangers.
 
Giyose says: “We are intent on exploiting the mis-valuation of companies in South Africa by understanding better where hidden value lies. To help do that we have an advisory board of senior business people, research and asset management professionals who can offer differentiated yet probable insights to our portfolio managers so enabling us to out-perform our peers. I’m delighted José Luis can bring to First Avenue his great experience in both research and business.”
 
Jimenez says: “I am delighted to be invited to join the advisory board at First Avenue Asset Management – a business which closely fits the quality profile of the rest of the GBAM group. Providing insights to Lo Giyose’s business is not a one way street, I’m sure that my own business based in Spain will equally benefit by sharing insights with a great asset manager.”
