Mirabaud Asset Management boosts EM equity team

Mirabaud Asset Management – the investment arm of the Mirabaud Group – has strengthened its global emerging markets equity team with the addition of Bryony Deuchars.

Deuchars, who has more than 15 years of experience in the emerging market equities space, has joined Mirabaud as deputy portfolio manager – global emerging markets.

She joins from Aviva Investors, where she was previously lead portfolio manager on a number of emerging markets equity strategies at the group, as well spearheading coverage of developing world consumer staples and LatAm/EMEA financials. Before Aviva Investors, Deuchars was an emerging markets equity analyst at Schroders and WestAm.

The addition of Deuchars – who reports to Daniel Tubbs, head of global emerging market equities at Mirabaud Asset Management – will particularly strengthen the team’s capability in the LatAm and EMEA regions.

Head of Investments, Umberto Boccato says: “Bryony’s extensive experience in emerging markets – particularly in the under-researched LatAm and EMEA regions – will be a great addition to the team. Emerging market equities remain a vitally important asset class for investors and we believe our concentrated, high conviction approach is best placed to extract alpha in the developing world during the next phase of the cycle.”
