MISSION WOODS, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ryan Caldwell, former Ivy Funds Portfolio Manager, today announced the formation of Chiron Investment Management LLC (“Chiron”). Chiron will be a boutique, actively managed investment management firm that will seek to generate attractive risk-adjusted returns for its investors. The firm will seek to utilize Caldwell’s proven, highly transparent approach to developing investment themes and positioning client portfolios. Chiron will have offices in Mission Woods, Kansas and New York City.
Caldwell will be the Chief Investment Officer of Chiron. He was most recently Co-Portfolio Manager of the Ivy Asset Strategy and Waddell & Reed Asset Strategy funds.
