Any U.S. companies wondering whether they should communicate with international investors should consider this chart…..
Premier Miton Group plc was formed in November 2019 from the merger of Premier Asset Management Group plc and Miton Group plc. The merger resulted in an active manager with $16 billion under management.
Nick Ford joined Premier Miton in December 2012 and co-manages the US Opportunities (AUM of $1.3 billion) and US Smaller Companies Funds ($458 million). Prior to this, he was at Scottish Widows Investment Partnership and before that co-manager of the Gartmore US Smaller Companies fund, manager of the US funds for Sun Alliance and Clerical Medical, as well as working at F&C Asset Management.
Hugh Grieves joined Premier Miton in January 2013 and co-manages the US Opportunities and US Smaller Companies Funds. Prior to this, he was at Herald Investment Management. From 2000 – 2008 he co-managed the technology funds at SGAM and solely from 2008 – 2009. Prior to that, Hugh also worked in the US smaller companies team at Gartmore.
What’s changed since the merger with Premier?
When we did the deal, Miton had $6.8 billion (£5 bn) AUM and that figure is now $16 billion.
How does Premier Miton differentiate itself?
We have a very high Active Share (94.3%). We are the only US multi cap fund. We focus on capital preservation and do not chase crazy valuations (e.g., we don’t own the FAANGs). We look very different to other funds and that works very well for clients looking to diversify risk.
