NEW YORK, NY (PRWEB) February 07, 2013
Drexel Hamilton Investment Partners, LLC (DHIP), a certified military disabled veteran owned investment manager based in New York with a series of ’40 Act mutual funds has completed a transaction to acquire the assets of an existing mutual fund based in San Francisco, CA. DHIP’s existing Drexel Hamilton Centre American Equity Fund (DHAMX) will absorb the assets and re-organize the former US equity mutual fund, a similar U.S. large-cap equity fund in investment objective and strategy. “DHIP’s mutual fund complex will afford the shareholders continued investment in the Fund with a well-known and experienced fund manager as well as provide access to other Drexel Hamilton Funds on DHIP’s platform,” said Andrew Bang, managing director and a founding partner at DHIP.
The Drexel Hamilton Mutual Funds include:
Drexel Hamilton Investment Partners serves U.S. corporations, public and private institutions, pension funds and insurance companies, as well as financial advisors and their clients. With the acquisition, DHIP will begin to distribute the Drexel Hamilton Mutual Funds to retail customers through Schwab, Fidelity, TD Ameritrade and other similar retail channels to supplement its existing institutional share class offerings.
DHIP is a leading disabled veteran-owned investment manager and is committed to partnership with clients in the education and adherence regarding the new federal, state, and local laws mandating the use of disabled veteran owned firms in their investment programs. DHIP, formed in 2010, offers specialist single manager equity strategies that they believe demonstrate a competitive advantage in their region/style as well as a distinctive multi-asset real return strategy. The partners of the firm previously served as U.S. military officers, including a Medal of Honor recipient as well as a former Delta Force (Army special operations) soldier, and are Wall Street veterans with experience at Credit Suisse, Lehman Brothers, and GE Asset Management.
DHIP is committed to supporting the greater community of service-disabled veterans and therefore, the company’s mandate is to recruit, hire, train, and mentor disabled veterans whenever possible. Institutional investors may benefit or receive credit for engaging DHIP as an investment manager as per federal and applicable state and local laws.
