American Beacon Advisors Expands Fund Lineup With New American Beacon Tocqueville International Value Fund

January 22, 2019

IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 22, 2019--American Beacon Advisors, Inc. (“American Beacon”), a leading provider of investment advisory services to institutional and retail markets, today announced the launch of the American Beacon Tocqueville International Value Fund (Institutional: TOVIX; Investor: TIVFX; Y: TOVYX). The Fund’s shares became available on January 22, 2019.

First launched by Tocqueville Asset Management in 1994, the Fund uses a bottom-up selection process that focuses on achieving long-term capital appreciation consistent with preservation of capital. Its portfolio managers employ a contrarian and value-oriented approach, seeking securities that are depressed in price, out of favor with investors, and/or trading at a substantial discount to inherent value. The Fund seeks to identify the most attractive risk and reward propositions across all market capitalizations based primarily on cash flow generation, balance sheet quality and the fundamental strength of a business.

American Beacon Advisors will serve as manager of the reorganized Fund, with Tocqueville Asset Management serving as sub-advisor. Tocqueville is a privately owned global investment management and advisory services firm with more than $11 billion in assets under management. As sub-advisor, Tocqueville will be responsible for the day-to-day portfolio management of the Fund, including managing assets allocated for short-term investments.

“The American Beacon Tocqueville International Value Fund brings further value and opportunity for clients and is the perfect complement to our existing family of value funds,” said Gene Needles, American Beacon’s chairman and chief executive officer. “Tocqueville’s time-tested approach makes them the perfect sub-advisor for this Fund, and we couldn’t be more excited to work together and strengthen our new partnership.”

“We can’t imagine a better strategic partner for our firm than American Beacon and are incredibly pleased to begin collaborating with them,” added James Hunt, portfolio manager at Tocqueville Asset Management. “American Beacon’s expertise within the industry and impressive distribution network will allow more investors than ever before to access and leverage our unique strategy.”

The American Beacon Tocqueville International Value Fund is the first partnership between American Beacon and Tocqueville Asset Management. As of December 31, 2018, the Fund had $823.2 million in total assets.
