Founder’s home provides name for re-branded JO Hambro IM

Office buildings1JO Hambro Investment Management (JOHIM) has changed its name to Waverton Investment Management. It follows Credit Suisse’s sale of the JOHIM business in 2013. The firm – which is a London-based specialist investment manager for private clients, charities and institutions – says the underlying structure of the business remains the same. Waverton is the name of the Gloucestershire family home of Richard Hambro, co-founder of the firm and late chairman. JOHIM has an Irish-based offshore fund range called Waverton, and some of the firm’s funds have used the name Waverton since 2004. Credit Suisse sold JOHIM to Bermuda-based financial services group, Somers Limited, and to JOHIM management in 2013. Waverton manages around £4.5 billion (€5.4 billion) of assets under management. All clients deal directly with their portfolio managers not relationship managers. ©2014 funds europe
