Weiller will manage NSAM’s US presence from offices in New York and San Francisco. His responsibilities will include product management, business development, and investor relations.
Based in London, NSAM was launched by Ashmore Group co-founder Jerome Booth in September 2015.
It brings together economists and investment professionals with experience managing and investing in high-growth businesses in emerging markets. NSAM is focusing initially on renewable and conventional energy projects in Africa, but its strategy is not limited by sector or geography.
“New Sparta Asset Management will be very focused on serving the US institutional market,” said Booth. “Emerging markets are 57% of global GDP using purchasing power parity, and that share continues to increase, which is relevant for investors with long-term liabilities. On these criteria, most institutional investors are massively underweight emerging markets.”
