Barclays has formed a strategic partnership with investment firm Elkhorn Capital Group allowing Elkhorn to offer clients access to additional products based on Barclays’ strategies.
Barclays has a track record of producing novel investment strategies, and in the past three years has announced partnerships with Roubini Global Economics and with CAPE originator Professor Robert Shiller. Additionally, in July 2014, Barclays launched its first socially responsible investing strategy, the Women in Leadership Index.
Elkhorn is pioneering a new chapter in investment management by developing a wide array of investment structures – including on UITs, ETF-linked and market-linked solutions – based on world-class research.
Fabien Labouret, Global Head of EFS Investment Strategies at Barclays, says: “This partnership allows us to offer our clients an expanded range of investment opportunities. We’re enhancing efficiency in product delivery, and matching that with innovation in investment content. Elkhorn’s multi-dimensional setup is very complementary to Barclays’ business, and very aligned to investors’ needs.”
Ben Fulton, Elkhorn’s founder and CEO, says: “We are seeing a greater demand for more custom investment products across a variety of market segments. By partnering with Barclays, we are able to offer clients a range of innovative investment opportunities. We are excited to bring Barclays’ expertise as a complement to our existing partners, including Dorsey Wright & Associates, to provide a unique and leading combination that meets the needs of today’s advisors.”
