Van Kampen Funds launched the Van Kampen O’Shaughnessy series, six quantitative equity mutual funds to be subadvised by O’Shaughnessy Asset Management, Van Kampen announced today.
The funds in the series are enhanced dividend, large-cap growth, all-cap core, small/midcap growth, international and global.
The latest offerings come in response to calls from financial advisers and their clients for “investment strategies that are logical (and) research-driven,” Jerry Miller, Van Kampen CEO, said in a news release.
Jim O’Shaughnessy, chairman, CEO and CIO of O’Shaughnessy Asset Management, said in a telephone interview that Van Kampen’s new funds, and powerful distribution network, will give U.S. retail investors access to strategies OSAM has been offering institutional investors for years.
