Global asset manager Antipodes Partners has announced the launch of a new London office.
Fund manager Antipodes Partners has opened a research office in London alongside the launch of their global long/short strategy, according to a statement.
The opening of an offshore office was attributed to the growth in assets under management to $4 billion within the last two years the firm had been operating, Antipodes Partners chief investment officer Jacob Mitchell said.
“It’s encouraging to see our funds resonating strongly with the Australian market as advisers, investors and research consultants recognise the benefits of our high-conviction, risk aware approach,” he said.
“And now with the Antipodes Global Fund - UCITS launch, we are ready to offer this same opportunity to offshore investors, a significant step towards realising our global vision for Antipodes Partners.”
Mr Mitchell said Antipodes Partners had grown to the point where it could open an offshore office and “accelerate and enhance” the “investment process”.
“In this sense, London remains the ultimate melting pot for corporate access,” he said.
Head of industrials and commodities research Chris Connolly is a senior analyst at Antipodes Partners based in London.
