Switzerland's Mirabaud Adds Senior Hire

Swiss-headquartered Mirabaud Asset Management has appointed Fatima Luis as a senior high-yield specialist to work alongside fund manager Andrew Lake in the global high yield bonds division at its London office.

Luis, formerly co-head of global high yield at F&C Asset Management, will be a senior analyst and fund manager on Lake’s team.

Luis has worked as an investment manager for more than 15 years and has extensive experience of the US high yield and European investment grade markets, as well as emerging markets.

“Having already recruited a fund manager of the calibre of Andrew Lake from AVIVA, with his consistent track record, the addition of Fatima Luis is another important hire as we continue to strengthen Mirabaud’s asset management offerings," said Lionel Aeschlimann, partner and head of asset management at Mirabaud.

The Mirabaud Global High Yield Bonds fund was launched on 1 February as a sub-fund of the Mirabaud Luxembourg UCITS SICAV. The fund launched with assets in the region of $100 million and now stands at close to $200 million.

In the past 18 months Mirabaud has focused on expanding its asset management team, in particular launching a global emerging markets equity fund, a European convertibles bonds fund and a dynamic asset allocation fund.
