Kenmar UK and Signature Advisors open for business


As a result of Kenmar Global Investment Management (UK) being authorised to conduct investment business by the UK Financial Services Authority, the firm is moving forward with its global marketing plan for its Signature Advisors business.

Kenmar UK was established to raise assets for external managers under Kenmar’s Signature brand as well as raise capital for Kenmar’s multi-manager funds from institutional, corporate and other ultra high net worth investors in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

Stephen Kingham, managing director of Kenmar UK and global head of Signature marketing, says: “The Signature model operates on the premise of identifying and partnering with talented individual managers by providing services to help them build strong, sustainable and successful businesses. In this context, we are able to capitalise on Kenmar’s 26 year history as a successful global asset manager.”

Signature will primarily focus on mid-sized institutional investors and sophisticated ultra high net worth investors that seek diversification within their existing investment portfolios via the addition of alternative sources of alpha offering liquid, transparent and superior risk-adjusted return characteristics.

Kingham says: “Signature not only introduces talented managers to interested investors, we also address the specific concerns associated with individual manager allocations. Our attention to transparent position level information, focus on liquid strategies and regard for operational risk and control draw upon Kenmar’s long history of monitoring and administering managed accounts, combined with its significant experience on the buy side.”

Kenmar’s headquarters are in Rye Brook, New York and it has additional offices in Richmond, Virginia and Singapore.
