CHANGE IN INVESTMENT MANAGER

Ironbark has appointed Copper Rock Capital Partners (‘Copper Rock’) as the underlying manager of the Ironbark GTP Global Equity Agribusiness Fund (the ‘Fund’). The Fund will be renamed as the Ironbark Copper Rock Emerging Markets Opportunities Fund.

How will the Fund be managed?

The Ironbark Copper Rock Emerging Markets Opportunities Fund seeks to outperform the benchmark over a full market cycle. The Fund provides investors with exposure to emerging market companies that are underpinned by strong growth prospects, proven management and sound fundamentals. The investment team invests in a diversified set of 80-100 small cap companies.

Why Copper Rock?

Following a thorough investment manager selection process, Copper Rock was chosen because, in our view:

  • The investment strategy is well placed to deliver strong results over medium and long-term time periods
