Pears Family Investment Management Arm Opens to New Investors

Feb 8 2011 | 7:57am ET

London-based Talisman Global Asset Management, the management arm of the Pears family, will offer its services to professional investors including family offices, endowments and foundations.

Talisman, which manages £1.6 billion on behalf of the Pears family, was established in its current form in 2001. CIO Julian Sinclair leads a nine-person team of analysts and investment professionals and new investors will be aligned with the existing client.

Talisman has achieved annual compound growth of 9.7% over the past 10 years. The firm takes a long-term, global approach to investing that encompasses fixed income, equities, FX, commodities and hedge funds.
 
Said Sinclair, “We believe that our offering is special—a strong 10-year track record in true global multi-asset investing, an experienced team backed by a respected British family of recognized commercial success. We are excited about this next stage in our firm’s development.”

The Pears family, which owns large swaths of London’s rented residential properties and commercial real estate, operates through three main divisions: William Pears, which manages its residential and commercial property empire; Telereal Trillium, the giant real estate outsourcing company that owns and manages commercial real estate; and Talisman Global Asset Management. It also has numerous joint ventures.
