Occam To Launch Euro., Asian UCITS III Funds

Aug 6 2008 | 12:01pm ET

U.K.-based Occam Asset Management is broadening its offering with the launch of a pair of UCITS III funds in September. The Occam Europe Focus and Occam Asia Focus Funds will be listed on the Irish Stock Exchange and will be introduced under the new Occam Umbrella Fund.

Europe Focus will be managed by Phil Cliff and aim to outperform the MSCI Pan Euro Index running a high-conviction and concentrated fund with 20 to 35 positions. Portfolio manager Phil Cliff joined Occam from Threadneedle, where he managed the Pan European Accelerando Fund.

Mark Williams will run the Asia Focus fund, aiming to outperform the MSCI AC Asia ex-Japan Index emphasizing “an unconstrained and flexible investment process”. Williams joined the firm from F&C Asset Management where he ran the F&C Pacific Growth Fund.

“The UCITS III funds are being launched at an opportune time and in response to demand from a number of investors who want the experience and proven track record that Phil Cliff and Mark Williams offer,” said co-founder Jonathan Hughes-Morgan.

Occam was set up in 2007 by Hughes-Morgan and David Sheppard and currently manages three long/short hedge funds investing in Europe, Asia and Japan.
