Mirabaud’s UK inroads
GLOBAL EMERGING MARKETS FUND
MIRABAUD ASSET MANAGEMENT
Type: Long-only Ucits investment fund
Description: Mirabaud 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 under the umbrella of Mirabaud Asset Management (Europe) SA and has a performance objective to outperform the MSCI total return emerging market index by 3 per cent yearly on a rolling three-year basis. Mr Tubbs said: “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.”
Conditions: Active management of equity funds favouring alpha generating strategies; bond management, including convertible bonds; alternative investment management and dynamic asset allocation.
Verdict: Darius McDermott, managing director for London based Chelsea Financial Services, said: “Mirabaud are making a push into the UK market, they have got some existing product which is based in Switzerland, but this is their first UK-based offering and they have managed to get themselves a strong team of emerging market individuals, so it seems like a very positive start.”
