Mirabaud Asset Management adds two to investment team

Mirabaud Asset Management – the investment division of the Mirabaud Group, an independent wealth and asset management group established in 1819 – has strengthened its investment capabilities with the addition of two senior analysts.

John Kisenyi joins Mirabaud’s global equity team as an ESG-focused investment analyst. He was previously at Wellers Impact, where he was an impact investment consultant. Prior to this, Kisenyi spent about a decade as an investment adviser, latterly at Barclays Wealth and Investment Management, where he engaged in various ESG-aligned activities.

Kisenyi will work alongside portfolio managers Anu Narula and Paul Middleton on Mirabaud’s Sustainable Global equity strategy. Mirabaud Asset Management’s global equity team constructs high conviction portfolios via the identification of multiple global themes displaying strong long-term structural growth tailwinds. Each quality franchise added to the team’s portfolios must also meet rigorous ESG criteria.

In addition to Kisenyi, corporate credit analyst Robin Jenner joins Mirabaud Asset Management’s fixed income team. Jenner previously spent 12 years at MetLife Investments, latterly as head of EMEA leveraged loans credit research. Before this, he spent eight years as a high yield analyst at Intermediate Capital Group.

Headed by Andrew Lake, Mirabaud Asset Management’s fixed income capability includes a range of credit-focused strategies – including EUR700 million in assets.

Umberto Boccato, head of investments at Mirabaud Asset Management, says: “Considering the continued uncertainty surrounding markets and the global economy, we remain committed to investing in top talent and further strengthening our high-quality investment propositions. After recently adding to our emerging market equity investment team, we are extremely pleased to further boost our global equity and fixed income teams with the hire of John and Robin – who are both experienced specialist analysts.”
