Narula joins from Axa Framlington
Mirabaud Asset Management
Mirabaud Asset Management has recruited Anu Narula to lead the global equity team in London. Narula joins from Axa Framlington where he was co-manager of the Global Opportunities Fund and lead manager of the Global High Income Fund.
Narula will take over the management of Mirabaud Asset Management’s existing global equity products and mandates, and will develop new investment solutions for the future, especially in high income. This is an area of particular interest for Mirabaud as part of the bank’s dedication to identifying income in a low interest-rate environment. He will be responsible for leading and reinforcing the global equities team.
“Our asset management offering continues to develop, with this the latest in a series of high-profile appointments. We are delighted to attract people of the calibre of Anu, along with his new team, and we are excited about our prospects in global equities,” said Lionel Aeschlimann, partner and head of asset management.
Philip Watson, chief investment officer of equities said that Anu’s reputation and track record in global equities will significantly enhance an already very strong offering from Mirabaud Asset Management in general and the London offices of Mirabaud in particular. “He also enthusiastically embraces Mirabaud’s philosophy of investing in quality companies with castle, moat and goldmine characteristics, so we are confident that he will be a key contributor to the growth of our business in the future,” he added
Narula’s recruitment follows a number of high-profile appointments over the past 18 months within the asset management division of Mirabaud, such as the recruitment of Dan Tubbs, head of global emerging markets (formerly of BlackRock), Andrew Lake, head of global high yield (formerly of Aviva) and Pierre Pinel (formerly of BNP Paribas), as the bank executes its strategy to develop its range of funds, and builds on its competitive advantages to meet the needs of its clients.
