Mirabaud Asset Management strengthens Swiss Equities team with Paul Schibli

Zurich, 29 June 2015 – Mirabaud Asset Management is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Schibli as Senior Portfolio Manager in charge of Swiss Equities alongside Patrick Huber.

The arrival of Schibli, an experienced manager rated ‘A’ by Citywire for his management skills in Swiss small- and mid-caps, is a strong signal of Mirabaud Asset Management’s commitment and ambition to expand its teams in a strategic asset class.

Mirabaud Asset Management manages around CHF 1 billion in Swiss equities both in funds and mandates, for professional and institutional investors.

With more than 20 years’ experience and unparalleled knowledge of Swiss companies, Schibli comes to Mirabaud Asset Management from DWS (Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management), where he was head of the Swiss equities team, with responsibility in particular for the management of a small- and mid-cap fund, with a highly successful track record. Schibli holds a degree from the University of Zurich and is a graduate of the University of St. Gallen (HSG).

At Mirabaud Asset Management, Schibli will join with Patrick Huber in managing the various funds and mandates, either as lead portfolio manager or deputy. Both will report to Philip Watson, CIO Equities at Mirabaud Asset Management.

Nicolas Bürki will continue to serve as analyst manager and, alongside Patrick Huber and Paul Schibli, will help analyse the Swiss companies covered by the team and manage a number of mandates.

"We are pleased to welcome a talented stock-picker like Paul Schibli on to our Swiss equities team, which is a strategic asset class for Mirabaud Asset Management, both in Switzerland and further afield", said Lionel Aeschlimann, CEO of Mirabaud Asset Management. "Paul shares our values and our active management approach based on strong convictions. I feel that the combination of Patrick Huber, Paul Schibli and Nicolas Bürki makes for one of the most solid and experienced teams operating in this asset class. Our recent 10-year Lipper award in the category of Swiss small and mid caps also shows our ability to attract the top talents to our firm for the long haul."
