Rajiv Jain founded GQG in June 2016 after more than 20 years at Vontobel, including 14 as head of equities. GQG stands for "global quality growth," drawn from Jain's investment philosophy of investing international (including in emerging markets) in "quality growth at sensible prices."
Jain owns 95 percent of GQG, while Pacific Current Group, a private equity buyer of boutique investment managers, owns the remaining five percent. Further down the line Jain plans to broaden equity ownership among the employees of the firm.
Under the leadership of Jain and of CEO Tim Carver, GQG emphasizes having a strong cost structure and seeing the money management business as a privilege.
In addition to offering its own mutual fund, GQG also subadvises a mutual fund for Goldman Sachs.
