We are pleased to confirm that as of 2 September 2019, the Stryx fund range have been renamed to the Seilern funds.
This follows the change of the umbrella fund name in 2016 and share class update in 2018. Our goal is to make the offering as transparent as possible and ensure continued access to the funds for all of our global client base. We hope that by bringing all of our branding together under “Seilern Funds” will make finding information on our fund range simpler.
Below you will find answers to some frequently answered questions.
What is changing?
After more than 30 years of quality growth investing, Seilern Investment Management, is turning the page to the next chapter of its development and rebranding the UCITS fund range under Seilern Funds. This change is effective as of 2 September 2019.
All of the firm’s funds now start with the word “Seilern”, which replaces “Stryx”. The funds will also be marketed under the brand name of Seilern Funds.
Below we have summarised the impact to the fund names.
|Old Name||New Name|
|Stryx World Growth|
|Seilern World Growth|
Why did you decide to rebrand?
What we do is simple – investing in the best quality growth companies in the world – and we wanted to reflect that simplicity in our branding.
From a practical point of view, as we grow our presence across new markets, and particularly in a world increasingly driven by data, it will be easier to find the Seilern fund range under a single brand. This change ensures that the firms and the funds are known by the same name globally and we believe this will improve our visibility and simplify access to information for our clients.
As we commemorate our 30th year, we felt that there was an opportunity to ensure that our overall positioning was consistent and would better showcase our fund range.
This process began in 2016 with the change of the umbrella fund name from Stryx International Funds to Seilern International Funds.
