Mirabaud Asset Management joins Transact fund platform

By joining its second UK retail platform, Mirabaud Asset Management enables investors to access its funds via Transact

LONDON, 30 January 2014 – Mirabaud Asset Management has joined its second UK retail platform, enabling investors to access Mirabaud Asset Management’s funds via Transact (Integrated Financial Arrangements).

Transact, which launched in 2000, was the first platform-wrap service in the UK and has more than £14bn under management.

This arrangement further illustrates the development of Mirabaud Asset Management’s business, after a significant recruitment drive and the launch of several funds over the past two years.

Lionel Aeschlimann, managing partner and CEO of Mirabaud Asset Management, said: “Fund platforms are an integral part of our distribution strategy and through Transact we are confident of gaining significant access to the UK retail investment community. We are delighted to be working with a company of such quality.”

Transact was the first to launch a wrap service in the UK, using technology and systems already developed and pioneered in Australia, where wraps were originally developed.
