Baring Asset Management has launched an international small-cap fund for institutional investors that will seek long-term capital growth by investing in Europe, Japan and the Far East, with the Morgan Stanley Capital International Europe Australasia Far East Small Cap Index as its benchmark.

Nick Williams, who will manage the fund, said, “Following the sharp decline in valuations over the last two years, this asset class offers investors the opportunity to invest in a wide range of exciting companies from around the world at attractive levels. Our disciplined bottom-up investment process, combined with the top-down skills utilized in our other international strategies, aims to identify and exploit the opportunities now available.”
