We are delighted to announce that we have secured equity investment from Winton Group. It means a lot to us to have this backing and provides wind in our sails as we continue to forge ahead with Havelock London.
Havelock London (Havelock), a new entrant to the British investment management industry, announced today that it has secured an equity investment from Winton Group, the global investment management and data science company.
Subject to regulatory approval, Havelock plan to launch a UK domiciled, global long only fund in 2018, which will be run according to value investing principles and will make use of Havelock’s proprietary investment analysis platform. This fund will act as a show case for the broader investment capabilities of Havelock, which it plans to offer by way of bespoke consultancy and future products.
Matthew Beddall, Havelock London’s founder and CEO, said, “We are delighted to receive the investment from Winton. In the coming months we will be working hard to receive regulatory approval, and this funding provides a strong foundation on which to build the company. We are committed to show how technology and data analytics, combined with traditional investment management, can help investors achieve better outcomes. Central to our investment philosophy is a desire to promote a form of responsible capitalism that recognises the need for capital markets to work in the interests of both investors and broader society.”
