MIRABAUD ASSET MANAGEMENT STRENGTHENS SWISS SALES CAPABILITY

Geneva and Zurich, 15 December 2020 – Mirabaud Asset Management – the investment arm of the Mirabaud Group, an independent wealth and asset management group established in 1819 – has strengthened its relationship management team with the hiring of Jérôme Paganini as Head of sales for Switzerland.

Joining from SILEX Investment Partners, Paganini has more than a decade of asset management sales experience – across both the wholesale and institutional segments of the market. He is highly respected in the Swiss sales space, with prior roles at Lombard Odier and Syz.

Paganini, who will oversee Mirabaud Asset Management’s sales teams based in Geneva and Zurich, is buoyed by the prospect of shining an additional spotlight on the group’s compelling philosophy and unique propositions in the Swiss market.

In the Swiss market, Mirabaud is witnessing increased client demand for its sustainable global equity strategies, which have ESG considerations entwined into its multi-thematic investment philosophy and approach. In addition, the group is also noting heightened appeal for its sustainable convertible products that favour moments of market recovery – while it’s highly regarded Swiss equities capability continues to resonate with the local audience.

Paganini comments: “I am extremely pleased to be joining Mirabaud Asset Management – synonymous with exceptional client outcomes in Switzerland and beyond. At times of heightened uncertainty, such as the environment today, it is extremely reassuring to note that Mirabaud continues to invest in its people and processes, which enables the group to remain at the forefront of the investment industry. I truly believe in the value of active management and am convinced our range of high-conviction portfolios – with sustainability integrated into the investment processes – will continue to resonate with clients in 2021 and beyond.”

Lionel Aeschlimann, managing partner and CEO of Mirabaud Asset Management, adds: Our commitment to client service is as strong today as it was at the inception of Mirabaud more than two centuries ago. Paganini is highly regarded in the Swiss investment community and we believe his professional approach and intimate knowledge of the local market will enable us to further strengthen our client relationships, as well as increase the visibility of our growing number of specialist investment propositions.”
