Atlantis Investment Management, an Asian equity specialist, has appointed James Weir to manage its Atlantis Asian Special Situations fund.
Weir was previously assistant fund manager to Tony Jordan, who he replaces as lead manager. Jordan has been appointed co-chairman of Atlantis Investment Management in London, replacing Peter Pearson who retired last year, with Yang Liu.
Jordan, who joined the firm in 1996, will continue to run the Atlantis Asian Recovery fund and the Atlantis Asian Opportunities fund. Liu joined Atlantis in 2002 and continues as fund adviser to the Atlantis China fund and the Atlantis China Fortune fund.
Weir joined Atlantis in November 2004 as an investment analyst on its Asia ex-Japan funds after passing an MSc in Investment Management at the Cass Business School. He also previously worked as a senior research analyst for International Data Corporation, a technology research company.
Jordan says: “Through his company visit schedule Weir has demonstrated his ability in both stock picking and identifying investment themes.”
The Atlantis Asian Special Situations fund is a sub fund of the Atlantis International Umbrella fund, a Dublin listed open-ended unit trust established under UCITS III. The fund’s minimum investment size is $10,000 and has assets under management of $49.5m. It was launched in October 2004 and has since made a 90.7% return.
Atlantis Investment Management has more than $4.0bn under management. Established in 1994, the company has offices in London, Hong Kong, Seoul, Mumbai, Tokyo and Shanghai.
