Argos Investment Management, based in Geneva, has changed its name to Quaero Capital.
The firm says its name change is driven by the firm’s “continuing international expansion and a growing concern that its original name may lead to confusion with other businesses in the sector”.
Firms with a similar name are Argo Capital Management, a UK-regulated hedge fund business, and Argo Investments, an Australian firm. There is also Argos Investment Advisors in the US.
Quaero Capital is a specialist investment management boutique founded in 2005 that manages active funds, including in a Ucits format, and has 600 million Swiss francs (€551 million).
‘Quaero’ is Latin for ‘I research’ or ‘I seek’.
