Plurimi, the wealth management and investment advisory firm, has opened its asset management business to external investors.
To date, the firm's funds, including the Plurimi Aviation Leasing, the Plurimi Sustainable Income and the Plurimi Global Opportunities funds, have been exclusively offered to the firm’s wealth management clients.
Ramzy Rasamny (pictured), chief executive officer said opening funds to external investors was the 'natural progression' for the firm.
Stephen Kelso, head of asset management, added in a statement: “Central policy makers have succeeded in forcing investors to assume a higher risk per unit return. Against this backdrop, our funds offer a range of strategies designed to ensure consistent returns and the preservation of capital, factors that are crucial in these uncertain markets.”
Plurimi’s asset management offering started in 2011 when it launched the innovative Plurimi Aviation Leasing fund, which buys and leases midlife aircraft to airlines in developing countries.
Thsi year, it also launched the Plurimi Sustainable Income fund, which invests in high yield debt that meets socially responsible criteria, and the Plurimi Global Opportunities fund, which takes a top down macro approach to long-short equity investing.
