Drexel Hamilton Investment Partners (not affiliated with the Phildelphia-based broker-dealer Drexel Hamilton) was founded in November of last year by Army and Navy veterans who are also alums of Credit Suisse, GE Asset Management and SEI Investments. Drexel Hamilton's principals are James Abate, Andrew Bang and Cal Quinn.

Abate also runs Centre Asset Management, which sub-advises two Drexel Hamilton funds, Drexel Hamilton Centre American Equity Fund and Drexel Hamilton Centre Global Equity Fund.

The other Drexel Hamilton funds are Drexel Hamilton 8IP Asia Pacific Equity Fund, sub-advised by Eight Investment Partners Pty Limited and Drexel Hamilton FOUR European Equity Fund, sub-advised by FOUR Capital Partners.

The four funds each come with an expense ratio of 125 basis points.

Aside from the mutual funds, Drexel Hamilton operates a hedge fund, Drexel Hamilton Centre US Long/Short Equity Fund.

Bang told The MFWire that the firm plans to launch a retail share class for the mutual funds within the next year. For now, the firm's sole focus is on the institutional market.

"Our background is on the institutional side," he said.

Drexel Hamilton hired ALPS, which was recently acquired by DST Systems, as the funds' transfer agent, adminstrator and distributor, Union Bank as custodian, the investment law group of Gillett, Mottern & Walker, LLP as legal counsel and Rothstein, Kass & Company, P.C. as the independent registered public accounting firm.
