Affiliated Managers Group, Inc. is an American international investment management company headquartered in West Palm Beach, Florida,[3] that owns stakes in a number of boutique asset management, hedge fund, and specialized private equity firms.[4]


Affiliated Managers Group (NYSE: AMG) is a global asset management firm with equity investments in leading boutique investment management firms.[5] Founded in December 1993 by William J. Nutt[6] as a privately owned company, its initial public offering on the New York Stock Exchange occurred in November 1997.[7] Since 1997, as of 2014 AMG has grown to approximately $730 billion in assets under management with stakes in more than 35 money management firms including some of the best-known alternative investment financial management shops.[8][9]

When purchasing companies, AMG seldom buys 100% of a business. They typically allow the employees of the purchased company to retain a quarter to a half of the company, in an attempt to provide them with an incentive to maximize profit.[4] On rare occasions, they will only purchase a minority share in a company.[10] AMG purchased a 5 percent share in Value Partners Group Ltd. in 2009. The company, a Chinese asset manager, was AMG's first investment in China.[11]

A substantial majority of Aston Asset Management, LP, was acquired by AMG on April 15, 2010.[12]

In the 1990s, AMG focused on purchasing midsize money management companies. In a shift of strategy in 1997, they purchased the large mutual fund company Tweedy, Browne for $300 million.[13] In 2010, AMG purchased Pantheon Ventures. Pantheon, a British private equity company, was AMG's largest acquisition since 1993. The company sold for $775 million. That year, AMG also purchased Artemis Investment Management LLP for $400 million.[14]
