Mirabaud hires Kirill Pyshkin from Aviva Investors

HiredMirabaud Asset Management, part of Swiss private banking group Mirabaud & Cie, has recruited Kirill Pyshkin in London to join its global equity team. Pyshkin joins from Aviva Investors where he was a senior global equities fund manager. At Aviva, Pyshkin was sole manager of £1 billion (€1.2 billion) worth of active global equity funds, including the flagship retail equity fund in the Irish market, Aviva Ireland High Yield Equity Fund, and its ethical version. Pyshkin outperformed the peer group over the three-and-a-half years that he was in charge of the strategy, while maintaining low volatility and low fund turnover, Mirabaud says. Pyshkin will report to Anu Narula, head of global equities. He is the latest high-profile appointment at Mirabaud which has made a string of hires over the last two years, including Narula from Axa Framlington, Dan Tubbs, head of global emerging markets, from BlackRock and Andrew Lake, head of global high yield, also from Aviva. Lionel Aeschlimann, partner and head of asset management at Mirabaud, says: “To attract people of this calibre reinforces our belief that Mirabaud is making significant inroads in the sector, and will continue to do so.” Pyshkin will start at Mirabaud on 3 February 2014. ©2014 funds europe
