NEW YORK, May 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UCM Partners announced today that, effective June 1, 2013, it is changing its name to Semper Capital Management, an identity chosen to better reflect the investment management firm's strategy, history, and values.
"Semper means 'always'," explained CEO Gregory Parsons, in announcing the change. "The new name perfectly expresses the qualities of longevity, continuous vigilance, leadership, and service that define our culture and the mindset we bring to stewarding capital."
Under the leadership of Mr. Parsons, the Manhattan-based firm has significantly sharpened its focus to offering investments designed to generate attractive risk-adjusted total returns with an emphasis on capital preservation and risk management.
"We are excited to establish a new brand that reinforces and sets apart our capabilities and core value proposition consistent with our strong investment performance over time, including having successfully navigated multiple challenging market cycles," said Mr. Parsons. "We look forward to continuing to leverage our differentiated skill-set and successful track-record in structured credit on behalf of our investors and clients."
Over more than 15 years, the firm has developed a strong reputation and compelling track record for its management of mortgage-centric absolute return and index-based strategies. The change to Semper Capital Management will also eliminate confusion with brands of other well-established structured-credit firms.
"This is a change in name only," noted Mr. Parsons. "The firm's senior management, investment personnel, and ownership remain unchanged."
