Mirabaud completes emerging markets fund team and launches GEM fund
Mirabaud Asset Management has recruited three investment analysts in London to support Daniel Tubbs to manage a long-only Ucits investment fund, which will focus on emerging market equities.
The Luxembourg fund was launched on 2 July and is under the umbrella of Mirabaud Asset Management (Europe).
The Mirabaud Global Emerging Markets fund has a performance objective to outperform the MSCI Total Return Emerging Market Index by three per cent per annum on a rolling three-year basis.
Victor Benavides joins from Amiral Gestion where he was a buy-side equity analyst specialising in Latin America; Charles Walsh joins from Hermes where he was South Asian portfolio manager for Hermes’ global emerging markets equity portfolios; and Neville Shaw joins from Baring Asset Management where he was investment manager on EMEA equities.
“Our asset management division is successful, growing fast and is a key pillar of Mirabaud’s global strategy. The arrival of this team will enhance our offering and marks only the first step in our drive to grow our range of funds and to attract talented people,” says Lionel Aeschlimann (pictured), partner and head of asset management at Mirabaud.
Tubbs adds: “This is a dynamic and focused fund managed by a first-class team, very much in line with Mirabaud’s philosophy, and I’m confident it will be one of many of an exciting new breed of funds being launched out of the London office.”
