Aston Asset Management has launched the Aston/Silvercrest Small Cap Fund, sub-advised by Silvercrest Asset management Group, a high-quality, value-oriented boutique headquartered in New York.

“Silvercrest is well-suited to Aston’s model of partnering with quality institutional investment managers that follow disciplined investment processes,” said Stuart D. Bilton, chairman and chief executive officer of Aston. “We are delighted to be opening the Aston/Silvercrest Small Cap Fund with them.”

The fund’s subadvisory team is headed by Silvercrest Managing Director Roger W. Vogel, who will seek equities with strong capital returns, balance sheet strength and dominant market shares in niche businesses.
