Johnston Asset Management changes name

Tuesday, October 03, 2017
Opalesque Industry Update - Johnston Asset Management LLC announced that it has changed its name to Hardman Johnston Global Advisors LLC. Headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, Hardman Johnston Global Advisors is an independent, global equity boutique that invests in high-quality growth companies at value prices. The firm manages international, global and U.S. equity portfolios.

The name change to Hardman Johnston Global Advisors LLC reflects Cassandra Hardman's significant contribution to the firm. She has been lead portfolio manager for the international and global strategies for over twenty years, during which time she has overseen strong performance and a substantial growth in assets. The firm was founded by Richard Johnston in 1985, who is chief investment officer of U.S. strategies. Hardman Johnston Global Advisors is 100 percent owned by active employees, and Ms. Hardman is the majority shareholder.

"Having worked alongside Ms. Hardman for over twenty years, I have the greatest respect and admiration for her, both as a portfolio manager and a person. She has been a wonderful partner to work with," says Richard Johnston. "Her experience in international equities and her disciplined investment approach have few equals."

Says Ms. Hardman: "I am pleased to have been a part of realizing our clients' long-term investment goals over the past twenty years. We continue to concentrate on providing strong returns to our clients as an independent boutique firm, through the focused, disciplined and repeatable investment process that's integral to our philosophy."

Ms. Hardman is chief investment officer and lead portfolio manager of international and global strategies. She also serves as the firm's chief executive. Prior to joining the firm in 1997, she was managing director and principal at PCM International, Inc., an affiliate of Prudential Insurance Company of America. She has a B.A. in Economics, an MBA in Finance from Rutgers University, and is a member of the CFA Society New York.
