Dean Capital Management, LLC (“DCM”) is pleased to announce the recent addition of industry veteran Mike Robinson, who will serve as Client Portfolio Manager of the Firm’s value equity strategies.
Mr. Robinson will represent the DCM investment team and the Firm’s equity investment strategies including Equity Income, Mid Cap Value, and Small Cap Value. He will work closely with Patrick Krumm as a senior member of the client relationship team, focusing on serving financial intermediary and institutional clients. “As we enter our 15th year at DCM, we are expecting an increasingly favorable investment environment for our approach that focuses on value and quality and we anticipate growing demand for DCM’s investment products. We can’t imagine a better person to represent DCM as we continue to provide the highest level of transparency and service to our clients,” said Patrick Krumm, Founding Member and Head of Institutional Sales.
The founding principals of DCM, including the three portfolio managers, fostered a close working relationship with Mr. Robinson at American Century for several years from the late 1990’s through the late 2000’s, where he was a highly respected and valuable CPM on the value equity teams during one of the earliest and most rapid stages of the group’s success. Furthermore, his extensive experience since 2008 has included significant and relevant roles at Threadneedle and RiverSource Investments where he was Product Specialist and Head of Platform Distribution, respectively. Most recently Mr. Robinson spent nearly a decade at M&I Investment Management/BMO Global Asset Management where he was Head of Intermediary Distribution for four years and National Director of Sub-Advised and National Accounts for his last five years.
Mr. Robinson received his Bachelor of Science degree from the U.S. Military Academy, West Point New York and his Master’s degree from Webster University, St. Louis Missouri.
Mr. Krumm added, “We are all very impressed with the experience, knowledge, and relationships that Mike brings to the table, but we are even more excited by his enthusiasm, understanding, and conviction in DCM’s experienced team and time-tested investment process.”
