Duncan has dual nationality and is both British and Dutch. In his free time, Duncan likes to travel far across the European borders.

Duncan Siewe: “I was famliar with the Juno team for a longer time, due to the partial overlap in the company universe and their strong reputation. It is a privilege for me to work at Juno, with professionals who have had an excellent decade long track record. I am looking forward to performing fundamental analysis on strong European companies, making onsite visits and meeting with the companies’ management teams.”

The Juno Selection Fund was founded in 2007 and the track record is among the very best in Europe, with an average annual return of 16.8% over the past 5 years. Juno’s assets under management total 500 million euros in investments in European small and midcaps via both the fund and a number of direct mandates. The Juno Selection Fund is currently closed to new participants because the fund has almost reached its maximum size due to the solid returns and the strong increase in capital inflows from both private and institutional investors. 

About Juno Investment Partners and the Juno Selection Fund 
The Juno Selection Fund invests in exceptional European small and mid-sized companies. Generally, these are family-owned businesses or companies where a family or management is also a stakeholder. Companies that are able to achieve a predictable and stable profit growth year after year are considered for investment. During the selection process, the focus lies on return on invested capital and free cash flows that are highly predictable in nature. The analysts/investment managers construct a highly concentrated portfolio of companies that they themselves have identified, analyzed, and regularly visited. Selected companies often remain in the portfolio for a longer period of time (over three years on average). This investment style has yielded the Juno Selection Fund’s participants superior results. The Juno Selection Fund is managed by Juno Investment Partners. The Dutch authority for the financial markets, “AFM”, has granted Juno Investment Partners a license for discretionary asset management of direct mandates.
