Mirabaud Asset Management launches a fund focused on alternative activist strategies

Mirabaud Asset Management is pleased to announce that on November 3rd , a fund focused on alternative activist strategies was successfully launched with seed assets from institutional investors in excess of USD 140 millions. This high conviction portfolio is invested across a few high profile managers who have, by their experience and track record, successfully demonstrated their ability to extract value from companies using an activist approach to investing. This Luxembourg domiciled portfolio is addressed exclusively to sophisticated investors and will soon benefit from an AIFM passport enabling its pan European promotion to professional investors. Mirabaud Asset Management (Europe) SA has obtained one of the first AIFM licence granted in Europe in 2013.

The level of interest rates and the level of liquidity inside corporate balance sheet are creating a favourable backdrop for such strategy aiming for double digits returns and lower correlations to traditional equity markets.
