Two Fund Firm Deals Closed This Week

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

A pair of U.S. mutual fund firms finished up deals this week, one selling itself and the other selling back a purchase.

Michael C. Forman
FS Investments
Chairman, CEO
Yesterday, Michael Forman, chairman and CEO of FS Investments, confirmed that the Philadelphia-based alternative asset manager has closed on its acquisition of New York- and Kansas City-based Chiron Investment Management. The deal, unveiled back in December, brings the FS team "a broader set of solutions and expanded distribution," Forman states.

Most of the Chiron team will stay on with FS. That includes co-founder and CIO Ryan Caldwell and co-founder and CEO Enrico Gaglioti (who will become co-president of FS alongside FS CIO Mike Kelly).

Chiron offers three MFs and is an active, multi-asset boutique that uses both quantitative and fundamental investing techniques. The firm, launched in 2015, had about $1.8 billion in AUM (when the deal was unveiled in December) and about 30 employees (as of last May).

Also yesterday, the U.S. Global Investors team confirmed that on Monday the San Antonio-based, publicly traded firm finalized their C$1-million ($750,000) sale of their 65-percent stake in Toronto-based Galileo Global Equity Advisors. Galileo bought back and canceled U.S. Global Investors' Galileo shares, boosting founder Michael Waring from a 35 percent stake back to a 100 percent stake in Galileo. (Waring is also the president, CEO, chief compliance officer, and secretary.)

The deal was unveiled by U.S. Global Investors CEO Frank Holmes. Holmes and Lisa Callicotte, U.S. Global Investors' chief financial officer, previously served on Galileo's board.

U.S. Global Investors bought a 50-percent stake in Galileo in 2013, then increased their stake in 2014.
