Former UBS executive launches Singer Partners


Brian Singer, who previously managed a USD200bn global asset management multi-asset practice at UBS, has launched investment management firm Singer Partners.

Brian Singer, who previously managed a USD200bn global asset management multi-asset practice at UBS, has launched investment management firm Singer Partners.

Singer (pictured) is the current chair of the CFA Institute board of governors, serves on the Exeter College at Oxford University Endowment Investment Committee and is chairman of the Milton Friedman-inspired organisation Free to Choose.

The formation of Singer Partners is Singer’s re-emergence into the financial services industry after leaving UBS in 2007.

Singer Partners’ strategy, known as global opportunity, is built upon the heritage of global asset allocation and risk management begun at Brinson Partners. The strategy relieves investors of the burden of having to choose between market risk and active risk. Singer Partners will navigate between the two, employing a process where total portfolio risk is managed in accordance with the investment return opportunities the firm identifies.

"Our goal with this firm is to ensure that all risk is understood, intended and compensated," says Singer. "We have assembled a team with integrity and skill, and these factors will contribute to an exceptional investment firm. The strategy is fit to endure bull and bear markets by strictly adhering to a time-tested fundamental investment discipline that seeks to deliver superior risk-adjusted results over time."

The firm has launched an offshore and a domestic fund for its global opportunity capability.

Singer Partners will begin investment operations in August and will manage assets for public and private institutions and high-net-worth individuals around the world.

The firm will operate with offices in Darien, Connecticut; Winnetka, Illinois; and London.
