Swiss-headquartered Mirabaud Asset Management has appointed Anu Narula to lead its global equity team in London, with effect from 24 June.
Narula joins Mirabaud from AXA Framlington, where he managed various portfolios including a global high income fund and a global opportunities fund. Previously, he worked at the global macro hedge fund at Cadwyn Global, from 2005 to 2007, becoming a partner and portfolio manager focusing on the global equity part of the fund in 2006. Narula began his career at Morley Fund Management as a trainee fund manager on the global equity team in 2001, before becoming a portfolio manager in 2003.
In his new role, as well as leading the global equities team, Narula will take over the management of Mirabaud’s existing global equity products and mandates, and will develop new investment solutions for the future, primarily in high income.
Narula’s appointment follows a number of high-profile hires over the past 18 months within the asset management division of Mirabaud, such as the recruitment of Dan Tubbs, head of global emerging markets (formerly of BlackRock), Andrew Lake, head of global high yield (formerly of Aviva) and Pierre Pinel (formerly of BNP Paribas), as the bank executes its strategy to develop its range of funds, and builds on its competitive advantages to meet the needs of its clients, the firm said.
Mirabaud Asset Management has operations in London, Paris, Montreal, Barcelona, Zurich and Geneva.
