Paul Schibli, the highly regarded head of Swiss equities team is set to retire in 2021 and has personally identified Scilingo as the investor and business manager best placed to ensure smooth continuity on the Swiss equity strategies, as well as to lead this storied franchise into the next phase of expansion.
Scilingo, who has three decades of investment experience, spent most of his career at Pictet Asset Management in Zurich and London predominantly focused on running the Swiss equity desk. His deep knowledge of Swiss corporates, as well as global equity markets overall, brings a desirable international perspective to the analysis of Swiss stocks, which is one of the most globally connected equity markets.
Scilingo, who is already working closely with the team, will formally step into the role of head of Swiss equities on 1 December 2020, thus ensuring the smooth transition of Schibli’s responsibilities across the breadth of the Swiss equity franchise.
Paul Schibli commented: “I am extremely pleased to welcome Daniele to the team. We have followed each other throughout our careers, often with a healthy dose of competition, but always with the utmost respect. His arrival ensures a natural succession to our Swiss equity franchise and I am convinced the team will continue to thrive under his leadership.”
Daniele Scilingo added: “The Mirabaud name is synonymous with Swiss equity investing, as well as entrepreneurial freedom with a responsible approach. I am excited by the opportunity and challenge to build upon the outstanding foundations Paul established and lead the very experienced team in the next phase of its growth.”
