Mirabaud bolsters European equity team with hires

European flagsSwiss fund firm Mirabaud Asset Management has hired two people in a push to extend its equity offering in small and medium companies.

The firm, which is already established in Swiss and Spanish small and mid-cap investing, has hired Ken Nicholson, who was investment director for smaller companies at Standard Life Investments from 2001 before managing the Standard Life European Smaller Companies fund between 2007 and 2014.

Nicolson is joined by Trevor Fitzgerald, who was previously responsible for pan–European small and mid-cap equities sales at Credit Suisse.

Paul Boughton, head of sales and marketing for the UK and Northern Europe at Mirabaud Asset Management, says Nicolson and Fitzgerald are well regarded in the market and “will be an excellent addition to the existing stable of talent we have built over the past few years”.

“In addition to many other strategies, we are also well known for our expertise in small and mid-cap equities in the Swiss and Spanish markets; to have this strategy in our fund range is a natural evolution.”
