BRYN MAWR, Pa. —August 2, 2021— Spouting Rock Asset Management, LLC, (Spouting Rock) a multi-boutique manager platform providing investment solutions and services, today announced a minority investment in Glovista Investments, LLC (Glovista), an investment management firm that leverages top-down global macro and bottom-up quantitative analysis to manage listed portfolios for investors.
Led by CIO Carlos Asilis and Deputy CIO Darshan Bhatt, the firm’s flagship investment strategies include the Global Emerging Market Equities Strategy (Long only) and Global Tactical Asset Allocation Strategy (GTAA). With a 20-year track record, the Global Emerging Market Equities Strategy aims to arrive at country, sector and currency allocations as it seeks to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Total Return (Net Dividends) Index over a market cycle. The Global Tactical Asset Allocation Strategy is a “go anywhere” type of strategy that seeks to generate compelling risk-adjusted returns and minimize downside risk via tactical allocations to global equities, fixed income, commodities and currencies.
“We’re pleased to welcome the Glovista team, who has a successful history of managing emerging markets strategies on behalf of institutional and retail investors,” says Andrew Smith, Chief Executive of Spouting Rock. “The addition of the Global Emerging Market Equities Strategy and GTAA will help to expand our international and emerging markets offerings and enhance the growth of our platform as we continue to add managers focused on the inefficient areas of the market.”
Founded in 2007, Glovista has built an investment team with broad experience spanning multiple asset classes, geographies, investment types and structures. The firm primarily serves institutional and high-net-worth clients, including pension funds, endowments, foundations, insurance companies, family offices and private banking platforms.
