Illinois-based multi-boutique investment manager North Square Investments has finalised the purchase of Advisory Research’s All Cap Value Fund.
The vehicle will now operate under the name North Square Advisory Research All Cap Value Fund.
Advisory Research will remain the sub-adviser of the strategy.
The latest deal is in line with North Square’s strategy to provide an expanded suite of actively managed investment strategies.
The deal, which is North Square’s second this year, forms part of a broader relationship between the two parties.
North Square will market the acquired strategy into retail distribution channels, including broker-dealers and RIAs, “focused on the separately managed account (SMA) format as well as model delivery”.
The investment manager will offer the strategy as a complement to its all cap growth strategy run by its affiliate, Oak Ridge Investments.
Commenting on the latest deal, North Square head of Distribution Phil Callahan said: “As we already have a strong track record of successfully representing over $600M of All Cap Growth assets through our partnership with Oak Ridge Investments, this transaction rounds out our All Cap offering with value equities allowing us to more efficiently deliver a complete All Cap investment solution to our financial advisers and their clients.”
