Swiss investment manager Mirabaud Asset Management has announced Nicolas Cremieux will assume full responsibility for its convertibles investment team following the departure of Renaud Martin.
Cremieux will serve as head of convertibles, having previously co-headed the team alongside Martin, and will be supported by Benjamin Barretaud, who joined the asset manager last year.
Cremieux joined Mirabaud in 2013 from Candriam Asset Management, where he had been head of convertible bond management since 2000.
He was promoted to convertibles co-head in 2021 in recognition of his contribution to the strategies since joining.
Barretaud was brought in last year from French bank UBP, where he was a portfolio manager within its convertibles team, to bolster the management of its Mirabaud Sustainable Global Convertibles fund.
With Martin’s departure, Celia Levy will continue as fund manager on the European strategy, with Cremieux replacing Renaud as lead fund manager.
It is the latest change for the firm, which appointed Carel Huber late last year as head of external asset management teams to extend its reach across the multi-custodian wealth management market.
In this role, Huber is responsible for expanding the segment across the group in cooperation with its wealth and asset management and corporate finance divisions.
