Principal combines with Border Asset Management

RELATED TOPICS​

Principal Investment Management’s parent company, Principal Holdings, has acquired Border Asset Management in a transaction that brings together two specialist discretionary investment management businesses.

The combined business will manage circa GBP1.5 billion of assets. It will have 130 staff and will operate from Principal’s existing offices in London, Sevenoaks and Bath, and from Border’s existing offices in Kirkby Lonsdale and Harrogate.

Commenting on the transaction, Hugh Titcomb, Chief Executive of Principal, says: "The Border and Principal businesses fit together extremely well. We share a strong commitment to providing clients with the highest possible quality of service and are highly complementary in terms of investment approach and geographic reach, with Border’s two offices in the North of the Country complementing Principal’s three offices in the South. As a combined business we look forward to harnessing the benefit of the pooled expertise and enhanced resources to further develop the range of services available to all our clients.’

Chief Executive of Border, Peter Lever, adds: ‘We are very excited by the opportunities created by this transaction with Principal. Border’s continued growth and desire to expand its services have demanded ever increasing levels of investment in people and systems. The size of our business now means that such investment can most sensibly be achieved by merging with a well resourced firm sharing our own philosophy and approach.’
