Findlay Park Partners LLP Profile
Findlay Park Partners is a private investment management company that provides a variety of services including launching and managing equity mutual funds. The company was founded in 2003 and is currently based out of its headquarters in London. Findlay Park Partners can trace its history back to 1997 when the Findlay Park Investment Management was founded by James Findlay and Charles Park. Findlay Park Partners was formed to transfer the company’s investment management business. The company works closely with Findlay Park U.S. Smaller Companies Fund PLC, an affiliated company, which was first incorporated in 1997. Findlay Park Fund would launch its Findlay Park U.S. Smaller Companies Fund in 1998 and launch another fund, the Findlay Park Latin American Fund, in 2006 with a focus on “applying Findlay Park’s careful investment approach to a traditionally volatile market.” Findlay Park Partners performs investment management functions for Findlay Park Funds and is one of its service providers with others including the Brown Brothers Harriman Fund Administration Services Limited company. The company utilizes a fundamental analysis and both bottom up and top down investment approaches to make its asset allocation decisions, investing in the public equity markets of the United States. Findlay Park Partners invests most heavily in the finance sector, which alone makes up over a fourth of its total asset allocations, and also invests in the information technology, consumer discretionary, health care, materials, industrials, and transports sectors, among others to a lesser degree, in order of decreasing allocation. Findlay Park Partners’s investment team is made out of 10 experience investment professionals with 7 fund managers. Its operations team is headed by Susan Fitch, the Chief Operating Officer, and includes its Compliance Officer and Money Laundering Reporting Officer, Head of Middle Office, Head of IT, and 5 additional administration staff in its 16 operational staff.
