USAA Drops Batterymarch, Hires Two

Boston-based institutional money manager Batterymarch Financial Management is the unlucky subadvisor.

Meanwhile, the lucky two subadvisors hired for the mandate are Denver-based Cambiar Investors and Granahan Investment Management, based in Waltham, Massachusets.

Boston-based Wellington Management will stay on as a subadvisor to the fund.

MFWire's calls to USAA and Batterymarch were not returned by press time. Both Cambiar and Granahan declined to comment.

The three-star-rated USAA Small Cap Stock Fund has approximately $1.1 billion in AUM, according to Morningstar's most recent data. The filing did not describe how the two new subadvisors would split the assets.

Cambiar's three-PM team on this fund will be led by company president Brian Barish. Gary Hatton and Jane White, Granahan's co-founders and its CIO and CEO, respectively, will head up Granahan's portion of the management team.
