DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–NZS Capital LLC today announced the addition of Jon Bathgate and Joe Furmanski to its investment team. Jim Goff also joins as Senior Advisor and Minesh Patel becomes a member of the board of NZS, representing the strategic partnership with Jupiter Asset Management.
Bathgate and Furmanski will invest alongside co-founders Brinton Johns and Brad Slingerlend, with a focus on long-term opportunities in innovative, adaptable companies that exhibit the key attributes of Non-Zero Sumness — creating win-win outcomes for customers, employees, the environment, and society.
Prior to joining NZS, Furmanski and Bathgate worked at Janus Henderson in Denver as analysts on the technology team, which was previously co-managed by Slingerlend and Johns. Bathgate joined Janus in 2008 and became co-lead of the technology sector team in 2017. Furmanski started at Janus in 2006 and covered IT infrastructure and telecoms from 2017.
“Besides their first-class analytical and investment skills, Joe and Jon exhibit the cultural and team ethics that epitomize NZS,’’ said Johns. “Jim Goff in large part is responsible for instilling these values in them — as well as Brad and myself — which is why we’re so delighted to tap into his know-how on building successful teams.”
Goff spent more than 26 years at Janus through 2014 in roles including analyst and portfolio manager. For 12 years from 2002 as Director of Research he was responsible for leading a team of analysts covering multiple equity sectors.
“Jim was instrumental in creating a team ethic with strong analysis at its core,” said Slingerlend. “A positive culture is a prerequisite for excellence so we, and by extension our clients, are certain to benefit from Jim’s expertise and strategic input.”
Further insight comes from Patel, Jupiter’s Head of Strategy and Corporate Development, who has been appointed to the board of NZS. Last month, Jupiter entered into a strategic relationship with NZS, acquiring a minority stake and becoming an exclusive distributor of NZS’s products.
Commenting on the relationship, Patel said: “The NZS mantra of win-win outcomes is very befitting — this is a mutually beneficial strategic partnership, as it gives NZS access to significant resources and support, while furthering Jupiter’s strategic priority to distribute its own investment capabilities in the U.S. market.”
