For more than three decades, our investment teams have actively managed a distinct suite of equity and fixed income strategies by applying repeatable, proven processes steeped in rigorous research and analysis.
Scout has grown from our initial mutual fund offerings to becoming an institutional asset management firm with global distribution. Scout now offers mutual funds and separate account investment strategies for fixed income and equity investors.
The firm began as Scout Funds in 1982 as a division of UMB Bank, n.a. In 2001, the firm incorporated as Scout Investment Advisors, Inc. and registered as an investment advisor with the SEC. In 2009, the firm became an independent subsidiary of UMB Financial Corporation (UMBF). In 2010, the firm was renamed Scout Investments, Inc. and, in the same year, acquired Reams Asset Management (Reams). The acquisition of Reams has allowed Scout to expand the firm’s fixed income solutions.
Today, our equity management teams in Kansas City, Missouri employ distinct investment processes in search of companies with quality attributes including prudent management, strong fundamentals and growth catalysts. The firm’s fixed income team in Columbus, Indiana and Brookfield, Wisconsin conducts stringent credit, sector and bond market analysis while responding to quality investment opportunities generated from valuation discrepancies and market volatility.
The firm’s thoughtful approach to asset management extends to how we cultivate long-term client relationships and to how we distribute our strategies via separate accounts, commingled funds, mutual funds and UCITS products. Consultants, plan sponsors, institutional investors and intermediaries rely on our client development and distribution teams for portfolio commentaries, data analysis and investment process reviews they need to make informed decisions
All of Scout’s associates are committed to proactively providing the products, performance and resources that help our clients achieve their investment objectives.
