Wells Fargo Asset Management launches six funds in UK and Europe


Wells Fargo Asset Management has launched six investment sub-funds under the Wells Fargo (Lux) Worldwide Fund as part of the firm’s growth strategy to develop its international offerings.

The new funds offer UK and European investors a range of investments from experienced portfolio managers whose investment strategies have been unavailable or under-represented in these markets.

The funds and managers are:

Emerging Markets Equity II Fund managers: Jerry Zhang, Derrick Irwin
Emerging Markets Income and Growth Fund managers: Anthony Cragg, Alison Shimada
Global Opportunity Bond Fund managers: Tony Norris, Peter Wilson, Alex Perrin, Michael Lee, Christopher Wightman
Precious Metals Fund managers: Michael Bradshaw, Oleg Makhorine
US Premier Growth Fund managers: Thomas Ognar, Bruce Olson, Joseph Eberhardy
US Short-Term High Yield Bond Fund managers: Thomas Price, Kevin Maas, Michael Schueller

Andrew Owen, executive vice president, Wells Fargo Asset Management, says: “We believe further expansion into the European asset management marketplace, which has an approximate market size of USD2.9trn and a growth rate markedly faster than that of North America, is the logical next step for our growing international fund line-up.
“In the past 18 months, we have witnessed meaningful growth in both assets and clients investing in our existing fund range. The addition of these six funds will allow UK and European clients access to more of our established portfolio management teams and provide them with fund options that have the potential to serve as valuable complements to their existing investments.”
