Levin Easterly Names Grace Bosserman as Chief Operating Officer

Levin Easterly Partners, a private asset management firm specializing in value investing, today announced that Grace K. Bosserman has been appointed Chief Operating Officer. She will report to Levin Easterly’s Chief Investment Officer, Jack Murphy, and to Darrell Crate, the firm’s chairman.

The announcement of Bosserman’s appointment comes shortly after Samuel Hendel was named President of Levin Easterly.

Levin Easterly was launched in April 2019 through Easterly’s acquisition of the institutional investment business of Levin Capital Strategies.

“As Chief Operating Officer, Grace Bosserman will ensure that our operations run efficiently and that our service is second to none,” said Crate. “I am pleased that she will play a key role as Levin Easterly builds for the future.”

Bosserman has responsibility for areas including liaising with clients consisting of institutions, funds, and high-net-worth individuals on advisory and investment management matters, and liaising between client management teams and legal counsel. She also will coordinate closely with the firm’s Chief Compliance Officer on various matters including business continuity.

In her new role, Bosserman continues a long career in operations. She had served since 2006 as head of operations for the firm’s predecessor, Levin Capital Strategies. Earlier, Bosserman had served as Head of Operations and Director of Portfolio Administration for John Levin & Co., another predecessor of Levin Easterly, which she joined in 1989.

Bosserman began her investment career in 1985 with Mitchell Hutchins Asset Management Inc., later a division of PaineWebber. Earlier, she held positions with Marubeni America Corp. and Toyomenka (America) Inc, Japanese trading firms with significant U.S. import-export operations. Bosserman attended New York University. She resides in Old Bridge, New Jersey, and in her personal life practices yoga and is a supporter of animal rescue.

About Levin Easterly’s Strategies

Levin Easterly’s investment philosophy provides a consistent and repeatable investment process focused on identifying good companies that have excellent potential versus the risk. Currently, the firm offers three primary strategies:

  • Large Cap Value: An actively managed portfolio, typically of 30-35 companies of which the firm believes it possesses a differentiated view than its peers.
  • Mid Cap Value: An actively managed portfolio, typically of 30-40 stocks that are quality companies, but down in price.
  • All Cap Value: An actively managed portfolio, typically of the firm’s 25-30 best ideas, spanning large-, mid- and small-cap value stocks.

In addition, Levin Easterly sub-advises the Transamerica Large Cap Value mutual fund (TWQAX), about which Morningstar says the fund’s “manager and analysts deftly execute a differentiated value strategy.”
