Mirabaud Asset Management, part of Switzerland's Mirabaud banking and investment management group, has hired Patrick Huber, a formerLombard Odier Investment Management Swiss equities head.
Huber becomes Mirabaud's senior portfolio manager responsible for Swiss large-cap companies.
His arrival is seen by Mirabaud as a major step towards bulking up the firm's Swiss equities team, which manages around 1 billion Swiss francs (€832.1 million) distributed among various Swiss equity funds and mandates for professional and institutional investors.
"We firmly believe we have one of the best teams operating in this asset class. Patrick Huber, who shares our values and our active management approach based on strong convictions, will be a major contributor to the quality, strength and sustainability of our client offering," says Lionel Aeschlimann, chief executive officer of Mirabaud Asset Management.
Despite Huber's appointment, the Swiss equities team at the firm remains largely unchanged, as Matthias Egger remains responsible for small and mid-cap companies. Nicolas Burki will remain in his current role as analyst manager and, along with Huber and Egger, will be involved in analysing Swiss companies monitored by the team and in managing a number of mandates.
