JO 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.
