Asset management group Neuberger Berman is re-branding its Dublin-domiciled mutual funds business following its employee-led buyout from Lehman Brothers in May.
The Ucits III umbrella, currently named Lehman Brothers Alpha funds, is being rebranded to Neuberger Berman Investment funds.
Meanwhile, the eight funds within the range will be pre-fixed with Neuberger Berman: Diversified Currency, High Yield Bond, Global Disciplined Growth, Opportunistic, Straus US Equity, US Large Cap Growth, US Real Estate Securities and US Small Cap Growth.
Following the management buyout, Neuberger Berman now has $170bn in assets under management.
"This rebranding is an important step in the establishment of what is now one of the world's leading independent investment managers," says Dik Van Lomwel, head of Neuberger Berman Europe and Middle East.
