Exclusive: Equity income manager leaves Mirabaud AM

Equity income specialist Kirill Pyshkin has left Mirabaud Asset Management after four years with the Geneva-based firm, Citywire Switzerland has learned.

Pyshkin stepped down almost exactly four years after first joining the Swiss group.

He moved across from Aviva Investors in January 2014 as part of the company’s efforts to increase its dividend investment efforts.

The global equity specialist was a named manager on three funds at the group, including a global equity high income fund, a concentrated equity fund and a US-focused strategy.

It is understood that Anu Narula, who is head of equity at the group and Pyshkin’s former co-manager on all three funds, remains in place across all the strategies.

Mirabaud AM confirmed the departure and said that Paul Middleton, a senior global equity analyst at the firm, would support Narula on the funds. It added that the firm's wider structurs has been designed to further aid the strategies.

‘The global equity team also sits and exchanges ideas with a broad range of equity and fixed income managers based in London and other Mirabaud offices. This creates a good platform for the sharing of ideas and company research,’ a spokesperson said.

It is not clear whether Pyshkin intends to stay within fund management following his departure.
