Argos IM seeks to end confusion with name change

Rebranding1Argos 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’.
