Wells Fargo Asset Management (WFAM) has agreed to sell its 65% stake in The RockCreek Group back to RockCreek founder and CEO Afsaneh Beschloss and its team.

The deal will take American investment manager RockCreek’s total ownership in the company to 100%.

The relationship of WFAM and RockCreek dates back to 2012, when WFAM bought a 35% stake in RockCreek. WFAM increased the holding to 65% in 2014.

The decision to end the relationship was jointly taken by senior management of both the companies.

The acquisition, whose financial terms were not disclosed, is expected to be completed by the end of next month.

“We are confident that the broad-based independent ownership of our experienced team, coupled with our firm’s data-driven technology and innovative culture will ensure that we continue to preserve and grow our investors’ capital,” Beschloss noted.
