Stocks in this article: AMG

Affiliated Managers Group, Inc. (NYSE: AMG) today announced the completion of its investment in Yacktman Asset Management LP (“Yacktman”).

With approximately $17 billion of assets under management, Yacktman is a highly-regarded investment manager specializing in large-cap equities through a unique, value-oriented approach. The firm seeks to make investments in high-quality businesses at low valuations with the goal of generating outperformance over the long term. The firm’s two flagship mutual funds, The Yacktman Fund and The Yacktman Focused Fund, are ranked in the top decile in Morningstar’s Large Value category for the trailing 3-, 5- and 10-year periods, with five-star ratings assigned to both funds. In addition, Yacktman serves a number of institutional investors and high-net-worth individuals through separately managed accounts and sub-advisory mandates. The firm was founded in 1992 and is led by Donald Yacktman, Stephen Yacktman, Jason Subotky and Russell Wilkins.

As part of the transaction, all of Yacktman’s senior professionals have agreed to long-term commitments with the firm. In addition, Yacktman’s two mutual funds have become part of the Managers family of funds. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
