Insight Investment and Pareto join forces
Risk management specialist Pareto Investment Management and certain of its affiliated entities have become part of the Insight group, one of the UK’s largest managers of pension fund assets.
The newly combined group brings together Insight’s expertise in liability driven investment (LDI), active fixed income, multi-asset and absolute return solutions with Pareto’s active and passive currency risk management business to form a global investment management company with assets totalling GBP212.3bn.
Abdallah Nauphal, chief executive of Insight, says: “From the outset, Insight and Pareto showed themselves to be a natural fit. The businesses share a similar risk management philosophy and client centric approach. The complementary footprint of the combined businesses provides a broad geographic reach stretching from the UK and Europe to the US and Asia Pacific.
“By combining Pareto’s expertise in currency risk management with Insight’s capabilities, we have created a comprehensive investment solutions business which enables us to provide additional value to clients.”
The combined group will be known as “Insight Investment” in the UK and Europe. In North America and Australasia, Pareto Investment Management Limited will be marketed under the brand name of “Insight Pareto”. The group will remain a fully autonomous investment manager in BNY Mellon’s boutique asset management structure.
