This morning Cliff Quisenberry, CEO and chief investment officer of Caravan Capital Management, confirmed the launch of the Tacoma, Washington-based asset manager's Caravan Emerging Markets Strategy. That strategy, which debuted on December 4, powers a new mutual fund, the Frontier Caravan Emerging Markets Fund, that is advised by Northbrook, Illinois-based Frontegra Asset Management and subadvised by Caravan.

Bill Forsyth, president and founder of Frontegra and its Frontier Partners sibling, praises the Caravan team's "fundamental, proprietary approach to country selection, combined with their forward-looking lens in their markets."

Frontier, a subsidiary of Magellan Financial Group in Australia, helped seed the new strategy, Quisenberry confirms.

"We've known them even prior to the discussions about seeding this," Quisenberry says of the Frontier team. "We like their management ... It really came down to a cultural and personality fit between the two firms."

"I was able to meet the management of Magellan Financial Group in Sydney," Quisenberry adds.

Partnering with Frontier is also about distribution, Quisenberry confirms.

"They've built a very effective team in being able to raise assets," Quisenberry says. "They have a great track record."

Quisenberry, a veteran of Parametric Portfolio Associates who PMed an emerging markets strategy there, launched Caravan in 2008. The firm started in the hedge fund and private investment fund space, in 2015 they launched a concentrated small cap EM strategy, and in 2017 they launched their first mutual fund, the Caravan Frontier Markets Opportunities Fund.

The Caravan team now includes five people, including one in Boston, and they now have about $70 million in AUM.
