Equity star quits DeAWM to join Swiss group

Swiss group Mirabaud Asset Management has further strengthened its Swiss equities team with the appointment of Citywire A-rated manager, Paul Schibli, as co-head of the division. 

Schibli, a 20-year market veteran, will work alongside recently-hired Patrick Huber, across all funds and mandates within the asset class and will report to equities CIO, Philip Watson.

Commenting on the new hire, Mirabaud AM’s CEO, Lionel Aeschlimann, said: ‘We are pleased to welcome talented stock-picker Paul Schibli on our Swiss equities team, which is a strategic asset class for us, both in Switzerland and further afield.’

‘Paul shares our values and our active management approach, based on strong convictions’, he added.

Prior to Mirabaud, Schibli worked at Deutsche Asset & Wealth Management where he was head of Swiss equities. At DeAWM, Schibli focused, in particular, on the small and mid-cap fund range and was the portfolio manager on the DWS (CH) - Swiss Equity Plus A and DWS (CH)-Small and Mid Caps Switzerland funds.

The Geneva-based group manages CHF 1 billion (€96 million) of retail and institutional clients’ money within its Swiss equities strategies and has recently taken various steps to consolidate its position.

Notably, Patrick Huber, joined Mirabaud in January 2015 as head of Swiss equities and senior portfolio manager responsible for Swiss large-caps, from Lombard Odier AM.

Schibli will now work with Huber in managing the Mirabaud - Equities Swiss Small and Mid, Mirabaud Swiss Equity Asymmetric - AMirabaud Fund – Swiss Equities funds and Nicolas Burki will continue to serve in his analyst manager position.
