Merian Global Investors

Merian Global Investors is a diversified global asset management firm with world-class investment expertise across virtually all major asset classes, in addition to highly-regarded capabilities in a number of specialist strategies. Our core investment capabilities, all of which are active, include equity, fixed income and a range of alternative strategies.

While our name may suggest we are a relative newcomer, our roots in fact go back many years.

The company as it is now known was formed in June 2018 when its management team, together with funds operated by the global growth private equity firm, TA Associates, acquired the “single-strategy” investment capabilities of Old Mutual Global Investors.

As an independent firm, we are committed to continuing to build a successful, specialised asset management business. Central to the future of our business is a belief that our clients appreciate the value of active investment management when it delivers what they reasonably expect.

Our strategy is to seek to attract and retain talented investment professionals, who are experts in their particular fields, and to provide them with the operational, risk management and distribution environment and support they need in order to thrive, yet without encumbering them with a blunt “house view” imposed by a chief investment officer.

Funds in Focus

The fund offers a unique investment strategy, providing actively managed exposures to gold, silver and shares in mining companies engaged in extracting the two metals in a format that is not available through an ETF. Exposures between gold, silver and mining shares are actively adapted according to the prevailing economic and market conditions.

The Merian UK Alpha Fund is managed by Richard Buxton, one of the most experienced fund managers in the City. The aim of the fund is to maximise capital growth through investment in a portfolio of typically large cap stocks. This is done through extensive fundamental research, including careful analysis of business models, company balance sheets and industry dynamics.

Evidence shows that global investors are the most underweight in their UK equity allocations they have ever been. Richard Buxton, head of UK equities at Merian Global Investors, has stayed put and stayed focused on generating high conviction stock ideas.
