Catley Lakeman establishes joint venture Atlantic House International

Catley Lakeman May Limited (CLM), parent company of Atlantic House Investments (AHI), has established Atlantic House International (AHIntl) to expand the group’s defined return strategies internationally.

Richard Butland and Robert Rankin have been appointed to the Board of Atlantic House International joining Director, Russell Catley, a founding partner of CLM. The team will draw on a combined 100 years’ experience operating in international markets to support the business’s success.

The business will target a broad range of institutional clients, pension funds, private banks and large wholesale wealth management firms and meets a growing client demand for solutions that provide predictable, defined returns, regardless of the overall market backdrop.

This new initiative will establish an Atlantic House presence in core global markets, including Continental Europe, South-East Asia and Australasia. Client service will be managed directly by the team for the larger institutions and a combination of distribution partnerships and networks will also be established.

Atlantic House Investments is a market-leading provider of defined return investments and has over £1.5bn in AUM across these strategies. Formed in 2012, Atlantic House has developed an exceptional and long-standing track record, delivering for clients across all market conditions. While parent company CLM has originated and executed over £11.5bn worth of investments for the institutional market since 2008.

Richard Butland is an existing Non-Executive Director of CLM and was previously Head of UK Private Equity for Goldman Sachs International. Robert Rankin served as Co-Global Head of Investment Banking for Deutsche Bank having been CEO of Asia-Pacific (ex-Japan). Prior to Deutsche Bank, Robert was Head of Investment Banking Asia-Pacific for UBS AG and was a member of the UBS Investment Bank Board.

Richard Butland commented; “I have been working with CLM and Atlantic House Investments for a number of years and have been impressed by their unique approach to delivering superior outcomes for investors. AHI’s defined return solutions are innovative and compelling and meet the needs of global investors in a challenging environment. Rob and I are excited to bring these solutions to clients globally”.

Russell Catley, Director, Catley Lakeman concluded; “The success of our defined return strategies in the UK market over the last twelve years proves that investors value outcome-oriented investment solutions. Markets are perhaps as unruly as they have ever been and the value attached to our defined return strategies has become increasingly clear. This is as true on a global basis as it is at home, and in conjunction with Richard and Robert, we strongly believe that the fairly unique set of skills we offer as a firm will add significant value to global institutions and wealth managers in enabling them to optimise returns for their given risk budgets.”
