Who is Lord Abbett, the fund manager with a chess knight logo?

by | 23 Oct 2019

Lord Abbett has a highly distinctive logo: a chess knight. It is a very characteristic image that makes it easily recognisable. It is an independent fund management firm, with a share capital owned by 50 shareholders, 90 years in the industry and headquarters in New Jersey (US). Its assets under management are currently close to 200 billion dollars thanks to the strong organic growth experienced in recent years. 

In 2019, the growth rate was of 10%, making it one of the few entities in the top 25 with net positive inputs. The firm is well known in the United States. In 2014 it began an internationalisation strategy, having landed in Europe with the opening of its first office in London in 2017. In Spain it is represented by Selinca. It began as a stockbroking firm, but has gradually managed to become a leading player in fixed income management. So much so that 71% of its assets are invested in fixed income, where it has several Morningstar 5-star rated strategies, such as a Short Duration Income Fund and a Multi-Sector Income Fund.
