Juno Investment Partners Extends Service

Juno Investment Partners is pleased to announce that as of today, it has extended its service by offering its clients asset management based on discretionary mandates. Starting from € 5 million, it is now possible to have assets managed directly, using Juno’s European small and mid cap strategy. Previously, this was only possible via Juno’s proprietary fund: the Juno Selection Fund.

Following the successes of the Juno Selection Fund, there was a growing demand for the discretionary management of larger sums of capital (through separate or direct accounts). The required license was recently granted to Juno by the Dutch regulator “AFM” (Autoriteit Financiële Markten).

It concerns a license for offering investment services, as stated in the Dutch financial law, article 2:96 Wft. Based on this new license, two new mandates will commence with immediate effect.

Juno Investment Partners focuses on stock picking within the European small and mid cap equity markets. The (family) companies selected by Juno distinguish themselves through their stable earnings growth, free cash flows, high return on capital and minimal dependence on economic cycles. The fund has achieved a return of 37% (July 31, 2011) since its inception in January 2008. It is the only Dutch fund within its category to have been granted a five star Morningstar rating, which places the fund in the absolute top end of European funds.
