Mr Moreno’s arrival is an additional step towards strengthening the asset management capabilities of the existing Fixed Income team which, thanks to its performance and expertise, has won numerous mandates and is now widely recognized. Mirabaud Asset Management’s Fixed Income team currently manages close to one and a half billion dollars, allocated across a range of products and mandates, for both professional and institutional investors.
With the arrival of Mr Moreno, Mirabaud Asset Management has launched its dedicated Emerging Market Debt fund in Luxembourg which aims to capture some of the best investment opportunities across the universe, as well as maintaining superior risk-adjusted return over the long run. The fund will take an unconstrained, global macro top-down approach, offering flexibility and diversification. Such an investment solution has been structured as an answer to our clients’ and prospects’ needs in terms of non-benchmarked actively managed fixed income in the sector.
Daniel Moreno, who has some twenty years of experience and unrivalled knowledge of emerging market debt, started his career at Dresdner Kleinwort Benson in Frankfurt as a fixed income and currency strategist, before moving to Deutsche Bank in 2000 as a portfolio manager. He has held senior portfolio manager positions at Union Investment in Frankfurt as well as Global Evolution and Sydbank in Denmark, where in 2011, he was part of the spin-off of the senior emerging market debt team into a newly created business in London called EM Quest.
More recently and prior to joining Mirabaud Asset Management, Mr. Moreno was Head of Emerging Market Debt at Rubrics Asset Management, a London based fixed income boutique where he was running a similar strategy awarded, amongst other, with a five star Morningstar rating in light of the outstanding track record when comparing to peers.
Mr. Moreno holds a European Masters degree in Management, a Business Administration degree and has also attended the INSEAD Executive Programme.
Lionel Aeschlimann, CEO of Mirabaud Asset Management, says: “We are delighted to welcome a talented new portfolio manager such as Daniel Moreno as a member of our fixed income team which is one of the key strategic focuses of Mirabaud Asset Management. We are convinced that we have one of the best teams in this asset class. With the arrival of Daniel Moreno, who shares our values and our active management approach based on strong convictions, we are more than ever in a position to provide our clients with high-quality, robust and sustainable solutions.”
