Little added that the acquisition of a majority stake in Capital Four meant Northill now had exposure to European high-yield credit, standing alongside, among others, its stake in equity manager Longview Partners, acquired in 2014.He said his company did not target “fixer-uppers, or businesses that need radical surgery”, but that Northill’s partners would seek to aid the new Danish acquisition by bringing their experience to the board.Näf praised the partnership as a “strong cultural fit”.“Northill’s engagement ensures Capital Four will continue as an independent firm where existing management continues to run the business, and will enable us to more readily broaden equity ownership to the firm’s future leaders,” he said. Asked about how Capital Four’s current €6bn in assets under management could grow in future, Little noted its shift away from being a wholesale provider towards offering products to institutional investors.The company currently runs an SME loan fund backed by ATP, PensionDanmark and Danica Pension, three of Denmark’s largest pension providers. Danish asset manager Capital Four has sold a majority stake to Northill Capital, boosting assets under management to $36bn (€33.4bn).Northill has acquired approximately 60% of the manager’s equity for an undisclosed sum, while chief executive Sandro Näf and portfolio managers Torben Skødeberg and Henrik Østergaard – all three of whom founded the firm in 2007 – will retain the remaining 40% stake.Jon Little, partner at Northill, said his company targeted specialist asset management companies for acquisition in an effort to grow its portfolio of managers, with an AUM of $30bn at the end of last year across managers in which it owns a majority stake.“We don’t like generalists, we don’t like people with five different products in different asset classes,” he said, praising the Danish asset manager as a “highly successful” firm.

Guardiola hails ‘incredible’ Man City with five-goal rout of Atalantaby Freddie Taylor3 days agoSend to a friendShare the lovePep Guardiola labelled Manchester City’s 5-1 win over Atalanta as “incredible”.The game was tightly balanced with City holding onto a 2-1 at half-time, thanks to a double from Sergio Aguero.But the Italians couldn’t hold off an avalanche in the second-half, with Raheem Sterling scoring an incredible hat-trick.The only negatives for City on what was a magical night at the Etihad was an injury to Rodri and red-card for Phil Foden.Speaking after the game, Guardiola told BT Sport: “It was a really good result. The way Atalanta played created that. It was man to man all over the stadium, it was not comfortable, we’re not used to playing against these teams.”It was no surprise Atalanta finished third last season in Italy and even this season, they’re playing well so it’s an incredible result. It’s three more points. One more win and we’ll be in the next stage.”Raheem Sterling was brilliant. He could have scored one more. Not just with the ball, without the ball, he helps us a lot.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say
After dropping two of three games to Michigan State last weekend, the Ohio State baseball team (18-8, 4-2 Big Ten) is hoping to get back on track for its third Big Ten weekend series as it travels to face Minnesota. OSU coach Greg Beals is hoping his team can bounce back from last weekend’s series. “We had an opportunity to take the Michigan State series and it’s disappointing we blew it,” Beals said. “Good thing is, we have games this week to get back to winning.” OSU has been trying to work on its winning mindset for a few weeks. “It’s just the mentality of all eight innings, man,” said senior shortstop Kirby Pellant. “The pitching has been there all year and the defense has been there all year and finally the bats are starting to come around.” The Buckeyes beat Youngstown State Tuesday night in Columbus in a 3-0 shutout and took down Miami (Ohio) in a 1-0 shutout Wednesday night. Beals said this week’s games were important for the Buckeyes in preparing for more conference play. “The week games get our guys a lot of at-bats,” Beals said. “They help position players get in the groove and they allow our pitchers to get extended innings.” The Minnesota Golden Gophers are 17-12 and 2-1 in Big Ten play on the year. Minnesota redshirt junior infielder Dan Olinger is a guy to keep an eye on for the Golden Gophers, batting .314 with 14 RBIs and a .984 fielding percentage. Junior pitcher Tom Windle has 1.44 ERA with 45 strikeouts and a 4-2 record in 50 innings pitched. Windle has been named Big Ten Pitcher of the Week twice this season. Minnesota will be opening the brand new Siebert Field for this series, having played its previous home games at the Metrodome. An OSU series win brings the team that much closer to capturing the conference title. While it’s still early in the season for talk of the Big Ten Championship, it has been on some of the players’ minds for weeks. “When I was a true freshman, that was the last time we won the Big Ten Championship, so I know what that feels like,” said OSU redshirt senior outfielder Joe Ciamacco. “I’m putting everything out there for the team this year. I want us to win this season. I want to bring back the winning tradition to Ohio State. We haven’t had it here in a while.” OSU is set to take the field against the Golden Gophers at 4:05 p.m. Friday at Siebert Field in Minneapolis.
