Aston Reopens Mid Cap Fund and Adds Co-Portfolio Manager

Chicago, IL – Effective February 29, 2016, the ASTON/Fairpointe Mid Cap Fund is open to all investors.  Concurrently, Brian M. Washkowiak, CFA was added to the portfolio management team, joining current portfolio managers Thyra E. Zerhusen, Marie L. Lorden, and Mary L. Pierson.

Mr. Washkowiak has 21 years of experience in the financial industry. Prior to joining Fairpointe Capital LLC in 2015, he was managing a hedge fund at BW Opportunity Partners, LP, focusing on small and mid-cap investments. Mr. Washkowiak spent thirteen years as a research analyst and portfolio manager at Talon Asset Management, Inc. and was a member of the investment committee. At Talon, Mr. Washkowiak worked with Ms. Zerhusen as an analyst and assistant portfolio manager on the mid-cap strategy.

The ASTON/Fairpointe Mid Cap Fund seeks long-term total return through capital appreciation by investing primarily in common and preferred stocks and convertible securities.  The Fund invests in mid-sized companies with strong franchises that management views as priced inefficiently relative to their earnings growth potential.
