Leawood, Kan.-based Montage Investments has teamed with Consilium Investment Management to launch an emerging market small-cap mutual fund.
Jonathan Binder, chief investment officer for the Fort Lauderdale, Fla.-based Consilium, is the portfolio manager on the Consilium Emerging Market Small Cap Fund, which is managed by Montage and sub-advised by Consilium.
Consilium was founded in May 2004 and in addition to its Florida offices has offices in London, England. Its approach to investing, according to the Montage statement, is “focused, non-indexed, rifle shot,” and involves bottom-up fundamental analysis and frequent travel and in-person meetings with senior management teams at companies of interest.
“The Consilium team’s familiarity with global markets and a wide range of companies located throughout various emerging market economies is second to none,” said Gary P. Henson, president and chief investment officer of Montage Investments. “Montage searched for a qualified partner to help us provide access to global emerging markets, and I am confident that we have identified a best-in-class sub-advisor in Consilium Investment Management. I look forward to the opportunities this fund will bring to our advisors and clients.”
Through a family of independent asset managers, Montage offers alternative investment solutions across a spectrum of asset classes and strategies that includes mutual funds, closed-end funds and separate accounts. Collectively, Montage Investments managed $18 billion as of September 30, 2013.
