Somerset Capital was founded in 2007 by Edward Robertson, Dominic Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg as a specialist Global Emerging Markets investment management firm. Over time the firm has grown to 28 members of staff with 11 investment managers and analysts based in London and Singapore.
Somerset Capital is structured as an employee-owned partnership. We believe in co-investment: our investment managers and staff invest alongside our clients in the products that we manage. Unlike many of our peers we cap our funds; we prefer to focus on performance above asset gathering.
At the core of Somerset’s philosophy lies a belief in transparency. We publish our partnership structure and all of our portfolio information. We also invite our customers to join us on company and country visits. Uniquely we invite all of our key clients to join an advisory board which meets annually, encouraging an effective alignment of interest between the partnership and our investors.
