Chiron Surpasses $1 Billion in Assets Under Management within 18 Months
Flexible Investment Strategy and Proven Manager Experience Delivers Strong Performance Within World Allocation Category
LEAWOOD, Kan. & NEW YORK – July 12, 2017 – Chiron Investment Management LLC, a boutique investment management firm, today announced that the firm surpassed $1 billion in assets under management since the launch of its first registered fund on December 1, 2015. Based on Morningstar data, Chiron’s rapid asset growth has outpaced more than 97 percent of the 543 actively managed mutual funds launched since December 2015.1
“The firm’s rapid growth reflects the dedication of our experienced team and the overwhelming support from our distribution partners in educating the marketplace on our quantamental approach,” said Enrico Gaglioti, Co-Founder and CEO of Chiron. “We believe our strong performance further validates to investors our unique methodology to marrying quantitative rigor with fundamental analysis in order to navigate uncertain markets.”
Neil Bathon, Founder of FUSE Research Network commented, “Given the incredible hurdles associated with launching new funds today, especially on the active side, what Chiron has accomplished in reaching 1 billion in AUM in less than two years, is truly remarkable.” This milestone is largely due to client demand for the firm’s flagship Chiron Capital Allocation Fund (CCAPX), which has surpassed $900 million in assets. The fund employs a quantamental investment process, with a core focus on achieving positive risk-adjusted returns.
Earlier in the year, Chiron launched its first UCITs product, which has over $170 million in AUM. Gaglioti added, “With a strong client base in the US, we look forward to building on this momentum as we expand globally. We believe our UCITs fund will offer our established strategy to a new audience of investors.”
The funds are managed by Ryan Caldwell, Co-Founder and CIO of Chiron, Grant Sarris, Portfolio Manager and Head of Fundamental Research, and Brian Cho, Portfolio Manager and Head of Quantitative Research. Caldwell, who previously co-managed Ivy Investment’s $40 billion World Allocation Fund until leaving in 2014, is a well-known name, and considered a pioneer in the World Allocation category.
“The current investing environment is at a pivotal stage in the global economic and market cycle,” said Caldwell. “Our disciplined, highly transparent approach to quantamental investing to position client portfolios allows us to remain flexible and perform well in an uncertain environment.”
Chiron currently employs a team of approximately 30 professionals across a wide range of experience, including investment research, portfolio management, distribution and client service, risk management, compliance and operations. Recently, the firm hired two additional advisor consultants, expanding Chiron’s sales team and geographic footprint to support their growth.
