UK investment manager Kames Capital enters US market

RELATED TOPICS​

Kames Capital is to enter the US market for the first time after registering with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

The move will see the UK based investment manager initially offer US investors access to two of its global equity strategies, the Kames Global Equity Income strategy and the Kames Global Sustainable Equity strategy. These will potentially be followed by a number of other strategies which the firm has identified as having strong demand from investors in this market.
 
Kames’ launch into the US market follows its successful expansion into continental Europe, where it is now active in 16 countries and territories across Europe.
 
The move to take Kames into the US is also part of a wider strategy by Aegon Asset Management, the global investment management brand of Aegon NV, to offer some of its most successful products, strategies and services to help meet the needs of investors globally.
 
Sales and marketing support will be provided by Kames Capital’s Aegon Asset Management affiliate in the US.
 
Kames Capital’s chief executive officer Martin Davis (pictured), says: “Our entry into the US market is another significant milestone in the development of Kames Capital as we look to broaden and deepen the distribution of some of our best products and strategies across new markets.”
 
“The agreement for our sister affiliated company to distribute our strategies in the US is also a positive step as Kames and AAM look to bring their successful capabilities to our customers wherever they are located.”
