“We’re providing a unique opportunity and access for institutional plans to invest in specialist funds managed by regional industry experts..."
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 17, 2011
Drexel Hamilton Investment Partners, LLC (DHIP), an SEC registered investment adviser and military disabled veteran owned firm based in New York, today launched four brand new 1940 Act Equity Mutual Funds. The firm’s mutual funds complement an existing Equity Long/Short Hedge Fund in providing a platform of boutique global and regional specialist fund solutions to U.S. institutional clients.
Drexel Hamilton Investment Partners was formed in 2010 by finance executives formerly from Credit Suisse, GE and SEI who had previously served as U.S. military officers. These industry and military veterans created a diversified investment firm with a global network of experienced, specialized fund managers with local presence.
Drexel Hamilton Investment Partners provides a platform of institutional caliber equity strategies offering global and regionally- focused relative and absolute return products managed by experienced, specialist institutional fund managers not previously available to US investors in a fund structure. These expert Fund Managers currently manage in aggregate more than $2.7 billion in assets (as of 6/30/2011). The Mutual Funds on DHIP’s platform are:
- Drexel Hamilton Centre American Equity Fund (concentrated U.S. large cap)
- Drexel Hamilton Centre Global Equity Fund (GDP weighted global large cap)
- Drexel Hamilton 8IP Asia Pacific Equity Fund (diversified portfolio of value Asia Pacific stocks)
- Drexel Hamilton FOUR European Equity Fund (concentration of undervalued European stocks)
The existing hedge fund product offered by DHIP is the Drexel Hamilton Centre US Long/Short Equity Fund, a registered offshore BVI investment company available to US institutions.
James Abate, American Fund Manager and former U.S. Army officer says “We’re providing a unique opportunity and access for institutional plans and sponsors to invest in specialist funds managed by regional industry experts who have a history of delivering consistent risk-adjusted returns – an especially valuable attribute during these volatile market time.”
Drexel Hamilton Investment Partners serves U.S. corporations, public and private institutions, pension funds and insurance companies, as well as select financial advisors and their clients. As a U.S. service-disabled veteran-owned firm, DHIP is committed to supporting the greater community of service-disabled veterans. The company’s mandate is to recruit, hire, train, and mentor disabled veterans whenever possible. Investors may benefit or receive credit for engaging DHIP as an investment manager as per SDVOSB federal mandate and applicable state laws.
Drexel Hamilton Investment Partners is committed to its charge of supporting veterans and disabled military personnel. Cal Quinn, former U.S. Navy officer and graduate of the Wall Street Warfighters program and Co-Founder stated that, “after serving in Afghanistan and gaining financial industry experience, I am delighted to be able to hire, train and mentor disabled veterans who have an aptitude and desire for a second career in investment management.”
The launch of four equity mutual funds in addition to the existing Long/Short Equity hedge fund enhances Drexel Hamilton Investment Partners by providing specialist regional expertise in investment management and offering high-quality boutique investment solutions to institutional investors.
