Switzerland’s Mirabaud Asset Management (Mirabaud AM) is looking to strengthen its engagement with small-cap companies in a newly launched investment fund by partnering with a specialist firm.
The manager is operating in tandem with Coninco, which is also based in Switzerland and promotes environmental, social and governance values to companies.
The partnership focuses on a Swiss small-cap fund geared toward socially responsible investing, which Mirabaud AM plans to launch.
Mirabaud and Coninco intend to show portfolio companies the “long-term benefits they can unlock while improving their ESG practice”.
“We are convinced that the financial markets, as well as the industry, have the power to promote sustainable business practices and address global social and environmental concerns,” said Bertrand Bricheux, global head of sales and marketing at Mirabaud AM.
