MIRABAUD ASSET MANAGEMENT STRENGTHENS ITS COMMITMENT TO THE UK WHOLESALE MARKET WITH THE APPOINTMENT OF A NEW HEAD OF WHOLESALE

London, 17 September 2018 – Mirabaud Asset Management announced today that Selina Tyler will join the firm in November to lead its coverage of external wealth managers, fund of funds and financial institutions markets in the UK and Ireland. Selina will also oversee relationships with investment platforms in those areas.

Selina joins from Hermes Investment Management, where she was a Director in the firm’s UK distribution business for the last six years. She previously worked at Man GLG and has over 15 years’ experience within financial services, fulfilling client service, relationship management and sales roles.

In January 2019, Paul Boughton, the current Head of Wholesale, will take up a consulting role at Mirabaud Asset Management to give him scope to expand his other business activities at Marketing Alpha Partners.

The timing provides Mirabaud Asset Management a transition period to ensure a smooth handover of responsibilities to maintain the continuity of client relationships in the UK and Ireland. In addition to offering active high conviction, high added value investment solutions to investors, Mirabaud Asset Management takes pride in its ongoing focus to meet the needs of its clients and provide outstanding, local services. The arrival of Selina Tyler is additional confirmation of this commitment.

Selina Tyler will work alongside Paul Waters, who leads Mirabaud Asset Management’s Institutional efforts in the UK, with both reporting to Bertrand Bricheux, Global Head of Sales and Marketing.

Commenting on the appointment, Bertrand Bricheux said “Mirabaud Asset Management’s UK business represents a significant portion of our assets under management and is a key focus for the firm going forward, regardless of the final outcome of Brexit. Over the past 7 years we have established a strong presence in the UK wholesale market and are delighted to continue to work with Paul Boughton in a different capacity going forward. With Selina Tyler taking over responsibility for the UK wholesale market, I am convinced that we will take our UK business to the next level, consolidating our clients’ relationships and continuing to offer outstanding investment solutions”.
