Markston International Portfolio Managers to Continue Managing Investment Portfolios on DCM’s Multi-Brand Boutique Platform

Same People. Same Process. More Focus. More Resources.

NEW YORK, August 2, 2021 — Markston International LLC. has announced that managing members Chris Mullarkey and James Mulvey will direct Markston’s three strategies—Large Cap Core, Large Cap Value and All Cap— on DCM Advisor’s platform. DCM’s platform features an array of in-house and affiliated boutique investment management and research brands including Lebenthal Municipal Income, INNOVA Quantitative Global Equities, Lisanti Capital Growth and Heckman Global Advisors Research.

Both Mullarkey and Mulvey, and their senior analysts (Jared Wein and Andrew Sidoti), will continue efforts to provide attractive, risk-adjusted returns consistent with those that have made them successful.

“DCM provides an exceptional platform, one that enables us to focus on what we do best—managing portfolios. It removes the distraction of running a business thanks to DCM’s well-oiled operating environment,” Mullarkey stated. “We’re also very excited to have the marketing and distribution strength of DCM,” added Jim Mulvey. “By joining DCM, we see a strong path for our strategies to be connected to more retail and institutional clients; something Chris and I have wanted for a long time.”

Markston International dates back to 1981. “There’s a lot of great boutique investment brands and I’ve been energized by the prospect of bringing them to life,” said Marc Rappaport, DCM’s Chief Executive Officer. “For as much as I’ve appreciated what Chris and Jim have done managing their strategies, I’ve always thought Markston could really connect with investors’ need for high-caliber, fundamental US equity management,” he continued. “I see Markston as a significant addition to DCM’s collection of brands recognized for specialized excellence.”

“While Jim and I see much in the way of deeper resources with this move to DCM, the fact that we were familiar with DCM’s management for several years was key in our decision process,” Mullarkey commented. “Ours is a business where moves like this can’t simply ‘look good on paper’—there has to be a good fit of people for us to thrive and maintain our investment focus.”
