Daymer Bay Capital, a third-party fund marketing firm, launched earlier this year, has announced JK Investment Management as its third client only a month after announcing the first two, Granahan Investment Management and Guinness Asset Management.
JK Investment Management is a boutique fund manager founded in 2003 with over $150m of assets under management.
Daymer Bay Capital is exclusively marketing JK Investment Management’s flagship fund, the JK Global Opportunities Fund, across Europe. The JK Global Opportunities Fund (with $94m in assets as of 15 August 2018) is UCITs compliant and adopts an opportunistic, contrarian, value-driven approach to multi-asset investing.
Daymer Bay Capital was founded earlier this year by Alexander Renwick and Charlie Baillie. The aim of the business is to work with a small group of high quality fund managers from around the world and bring a new level of professionalism to third-party fund marketing in Europe.
Alexander Renwick was previously a Director at the third-party marketing firm Aravis Partners. Charlie Baillie worked in the Institutional Client Team at Aberdeen Standard Investments.
Co-Founder Alexander Renwick said “We believe that JK Investment Management’s proven investment track record and robust operating structure will meet the demands of European investors, both institutional and wholesale. What we really like about the JK Investment Management team, and what drew us to them, is the flexibility of their approach. The performance numbers speak for themselves and we cannot wait to get started in earnest.”
Co-Founder Charlie Baillie said “Winning JK Investment Management as our third fund manager client in only a matter of months since the launch of our business is a strong endorsement of the Daymer Bay Capital approach which is underpinned by integrity, strong technical abilities and sophisticated market intelligence. We are making solid progress in our ambition to become Europe’s pre-eminent professional third-party fund marketer.”
