Artemis launches two more US equity funds

The two funds are:
  • Artemis US Smaller Companies Fund, managed by Cormac Weldon
  • Artemis US Absolute Return Fund, managed by Stephen Moore

Details of these funds are online at www.artemis.co.uk/usa. Both will draw on the top-down strategic analysis and bottom-up research of Artemis’ seven-strong US team. Both will use the team’s flexible, pragmatic approach to stockpicking.

Cormac Weldon, team head, says: “Having joined Artemis in May, it’s a great pleasure to launch these last two funds. Lower share prices have given us attractive entry points into a number of leading US companies. I am seeing just as many investment opportunities in North America now as I have throughout my 25-year career.”

Dick Turpin, Artemis’ head of asset-gathering, says: “The record of Cormac and his team speaks for itself. We’re delighted to be launching these funds, and have every confidence that they will meet our investors’ expectations.”
