Seven of Threadneedle’s North American team join Artemis

Artemis’ senior partner, Mark Tyndall, said in January: “Our strategy for meeting our clients’ needs continues. With successful Global Income, European Opportunities and Global Select funds, we have already broadened what we offer our clients. Cormac and his colleagues will allow us to add North American equities to our range for the first time.”

Artemis’ head of retail, Richard Pursglove, added: “We are delighted to welcome all seven members of this outstanding team. Subject to regulatory approval, we will be launching five funds for them towards the end of Q3 this year. These funds will include long-only and long-short strategies for distribution in the UK and Europe. This significant development for Artemis broadens further the asset classes available to our clients. And given the team’s record, we are confident that they will meet or exceed investors’ expectations.”
