J O Hambro Investment Management (JOHIM) has changed its name to Waverton Investment Management.
The rebrand follows the sale of the JOHIM business by Credit Suisse to Bermuda based financial services group, Somers Limited, and JOHIM management in 2013.
The London based specialist investment manager, which provides discretionary portfolio management for private clients, charities and institutions, also offers a range of offshore funds through its Dublin-based Waverton Fund range.
Hugh Grootenhuis, chief executive, Waverton Investment Management, says: “Today’s announcement represents a change in name only. The underlying structure of the business remains the same and we will continue to offer the same high quality service and seek the superior investment performance that our clients have always expected of us.
“The business has been through a year of exciting development and the change of our name to Waverton is part of that journey. As a firm, we are committed to offering clients an exceptional investment service and will continue to invest in our internationally focused investment resources. Our aim remains to be acknowledged as one of the leading independent investment management firms.”
The firm’s existing funds have used the Waverton banner since 2004. Waverton was originally chosen as it is the name of the Gloucestershire family home of Richard Hambro, co-founder and late chairman.
