Value Partners focuses on investments in greater China, and has US$4.6 billion in assets under management. Terms of the deal, including the price AMG paid for the 5% stake, were not disclosed, but the two will collaborate on distribution and product development. The deal also paves the way for Beverly, Mass.-based AMG to open its own Hong Kong office, for sales and marketing, next year.
“Our investment in Value Partners marks our entry into the Greater China region, and we are very pleased to partner with one of the largest and most respected independent boutique asset management firms,” Sean Healey, CEO of AMG, said.
AMG invests in asset management companies, and owns stakes in hedge funds AQR Capital Management, BlueMountain Capital Management and ValueAct Capital.
