Mirabaud Asset Management Pushes Fund Development With New Manager

Natasha Taghavi 8 November 2012


Mirabaud Asset Management, part of Geneva-based Mirabaud &
Cie, has appointed Andrew
Lake to the role of global
high yield manager, as the firm looks to develop its range of funds.

Lake will
report to Lionel Aeschlimann, partner and head of asset management at Mirabaud,
and will manage global high yield solutions for Mirabaud clients.

“Our asset management division goes from strength to strength, as demonstrated by our ability to attract someone as successful as Andrew Lake;
this addition to our team is clear evidence of the success of our development
and will further support the growth of our range of funds,” said Aeschlimann.

Lake, who will join Mirabaud on 3 January 2013, was latterly
at Aviva investors, where he spent two years heading up the high yield business in London. Before that, he
was at F&C Asset Management for four years, having begun his high yield
career at Merrill Lynch Investment Managers in 1998.

The appointment follows a number of hires at the group across
this year, including the recent appointment of Patrick Stauffer, who was last
month appointed to oversee the marketing of funds and mandates to financial
intermediaries and institutional clients in German-speaking Switzerland.

Mirabaud employs around 600 staff in offices in Switzerland, elsewhere in Europe (London, Paris, Madrid, Barcelona and Luxembourg) and the rest of the world (Montreal, Hong Kong, Dubai
and Perth).
