Founded in early 2006, Highclere International Investors is a long-only international small and mid cap investment boutique with offices in London and Westport, Connecticut. Our sole purpose is to invest client funds in small and medium sized companies listed in markets outside North America. We focus on generating absolute returns for our clients over the long term, and are comfortable investing at the smaller, under-researched end of our universe. At Highclere we are very active in our investment analysis and travel the world seeking lesser known companies in which to invest.
We are an independent firm, owned and controlled by our partners, and associated with Silchester Partners Limited. We run three closely related investment programs: an international smaller companies program launched in 2006; an international SMID program launched in 2008 and an emerging markets SMID program launched in 2013. All three programs are offered via commingled pools which are open to US and non US taxable and tax-exempt investors.
Our investment team is led by Ed Makin, Portfolio Manager, who is closely assisted by Nikunj Hindocha, Portfolio Manager, and a team of eight global sector analysts. Ed Makin has over twenty nine years of investment experience, more than nineteen years of which have been dedicated to international small and mid cap investing. The team is supported by ten professionals dedicated to marketing, client service and operations.
