Who we are

Munro was created in 2016 by a group of like-minded investment professionals determined to build a different kind of funds management business. This shared vision came together under the leadership of Nick Griffin, Munro Partners’ chief investment officer and an industry veteran with a long track record of investment success.

We are single-minded and distinctive – if not unique – in the way we run our business and manage our clients’ money.  

Our aim is to be your global growth manager.

  • Global growth only: Global focused, global networks, global equities only. No domestic biases.
  • Partnership: Aligned longevity in business, aligned longevity in funds.
  • Risk management: Absolute return mindset heritage with proprietary stop loss review framework.
  • Relationships: Active in meetings and our network with Munro’s own qualitative and quantitative analysis.
  • Track record: Munro's successful past gives the confidence to believe in the future potential.
  • Areas of Interest: Identify structural growth trends and their winners.

Munro has an unwavering conviction that finding tomorrow’s winners comes from understanding how and why the world is changing – and our investment track record bears this out.  

The partnership

Drawing upon the wisdom of some of the most enduring asset management businesses in the world, Munro has been formed as a partnership. The organisational stability created by this ownership structure allows Munro to recruit, and importantly retain, key staff over the long term. Helping us build an enduring business that reflects our collective values.

The partnership is made up of a team of like-minded individuals with previous working relationships that have come together to build, own and operate a successful global equities fund manager. All partners are significantly invested in the fund, ensuring strong alignment between partners and investors.

In May 2017,  an alliance with GSFM was formed to provide distribution and responsible entity services for Munro and our funds and allowing us to focus on investment performance, operational excellence and communications. This successful alliance also allowed Munro to offer its long/short and long only strategies to the Canadian retail market through GSFM's parent entity, CI Global Asset Management.
