Press release - 22/02/2016

Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management opened its London office in 2012. It is now further developing its activities by registering several flagship products for sale in the UK. These funds are available through the Edmond de Rothschild Fund UCITS umbrella domiciled in Luxembourg.

Improving access to our funds

Sterling and sterling hedged classes have been introduced for the first time, and now a total of 16 sub-funds have been registered for sale in the UK. This covers a range of specialties in which Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management has a long and successful history, including European and global equities, various thematic funds, convertible bonds and emerging market bonds. Several of those flagships were already successful in gathering considerable assets under management like Edmond de Rothschild Fund – Europe Synergy (€ 1.1 Bn), Edmond de Rothschild Fund – US Value & Yield (€ 1.2 Bn) or Edmond de Rothschild Fund – Europe Convertibles (€ 0.9 Bn)1.

"The registration of many funds in the UK is a key milestone in our expansion plans into this crucial market", said Guillaume Poli, deputy CEO of Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (France). "This represents an important step in the development of our business in the UK and supports growth", he added.

"Our footprint in London has already grown substantially since 2012", said Charles Goodman, CEO of Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management (UK) Ltd. "We now have almost 40 staff and significant assets under management, essentially from non-UK and purely institutional clients. The availability of our main strategies in a fund format is an important milestone that will allow us to raise our profile with a broader audience".

At December 31 2015, Edmond de Rothschild Asset Management had € 54bn under management, at the highest, compared to € 46.6bn at December 31 2014.
