NZS Capital Names Adam Schor as President

NZS Capital, which invests in innovative growth businesses that maximize value for all stakeholders, today named Adam Schor as President.

Schor will oversee all non-investment operations including compliance, risk management and the distribution aspects of the company’s proposed strategic partnership with Jupiter Asset Management.

Co-founders Brad Slingerlend and Brinton Johns were portfolio managers on the Janus Henderson Global Technology strategy before starting NZS Capital in 2019, which invests in businesses that create value by maximizing outcomes for their investors, customers, employees, society and the global environment.

"It’s truly exciting to be a part of NZS Capital from the very beginning and to work with such visionary investors with a unique and proven philosophy and style," Schor said.

Before joining NZS Capital, Schor worked for 11 years at Denver-based Janus Henderson, where he was Director of Global Equity Strategies. Prior to Janus Henderson, he spent 10 years at boutique investment firm Bee & Associates, where he was Chief Investment Officer. He has 28 years of experience in the investment industry.

"Adam has an outstanding track record dealing with both operational issues and institutional clients globally, which will provide major benefits for NZS Capital as we build an enduring investment culture for the decades to come," Slingerlend said.

"Smart companies know where their skills deficits lie and hire to fill those gaps," added Johns. "Having Adam in charge of operations gives Brad and me the confidence to focus all our energies on following our investment principles to deliver the outcomes our clients expect."
