Mirabaud Asset Management has recruited Simon Götschmann in Zurich to complete its Swiss equity team.
Götschmann joins from Helvea where he was an analyst covering Swiss equities.
Götschmann joined on 1 July 2013 and completes the team consisting of Matthias Egger, specialist for Swiss small- and mid-caps, and Nicolas Bürki, specialist for Swiss large-caps.
Götschmann will initially be the analyst for Swiss equities, supporting both Egger and Bürki on the management of the Swiss equity products.
He has a deep knowledge of Swiss equities, having worked for Helvea as a sell-side analyst for medical technology, and for Berenberg Bank covering Swiss industrials. Götschmann was rated number two analyst in Swiss small- and mid-caps by Thomson Reuters Starmine in 2011.
The Swiss equity team manages close to CHF800m, consisting of three funds: Mirabaud – Equities Swiss Small and Mid, Mirabaud Fund (CH) Swiss Equities, DM Swiss Equity Asymmetric, as well as Swiss equity mandates.
Lionel Aeschlimann, partner and head of asset management at Mirabaud, says: “Our capabilities in Swiss equities continue to develop in order to accommodate the recent success we have had in this asset class with both institutional investors and wholesale distributors.”
