On 14 January, Old Mutual Asset Managers (OMAM) will bring out an offshore mirror of Ashton Bradbury's onshore UK Select Smaller Companies fund, which currently has assets under management of more than £70m.
The Dublin-based Oeic has been launched in response to a number of intermediaries asking for Bradbury's fund in an offshore format.
The launch will not be highly publicised as OMAM has decided to focus on getting the UK Select Mid Cap fund away.
It has not ruled out a similar offshore mirror version of this fund.
The Gerrard range of funds, only renamed from Capel Cure Sharp earlier in the year, is to be rebranded on 2 January.
Moore, OMAM's head of UK Growth, joined in October and immediately took over the Old Mutual UK Growth fund previously run by Bradbury.
Bradbury, who is best known as a UK smaller companies fund manager, has been keen to find a replacement for the UK Growth fund, which he has run since joining OMAM in September last year from Hill Samuel with a stable of active managers led by chief executive John Ainsworth.
