London Nominees has just launched a fund dedicated solely to investment in the sport of soccer.
The fund, called London Nominees Football Fund, is being managed by a combination of dedicated finance professionals, ex-players, and club managers with intimate experience in and knowledge of the game.
Brian Robson, former Manchester United star and current manager of the Thai national team, is a key adviser to to the fund.
The fund has started out with a relatively low capital base of $40 million in assets under management, much less than would be required to acquire a club or franchise.
But the fund isn’t intended as a take over vehicle, like the one established by the Glazer’s to buyout Manchester United, but is instead meant to diversify across the industry.
