Swiss asset manager strikes deal with Allfunds, targets LatAm

Swiss asset manager strikes deal with Allfunds, targets LatAm

Swiss investment firm Quaero Capital has reached an agreement with Allfunds Bank to make its funds available on its global mutual fund platform.

Through the agreement, the Geneva-based group will look to expand the distribution of its Sicav sub-funds to over 40 countries in which Allfunds has a presence, according to a press release from the Swiss firm.

It is also looking to partner with a third-party marketer in Latin America to take advantage of Allfunds’s presence in the region. As of May, Allfunds had over $5 billion in assets in Latin America, as well as local offices in Chile and Colombia.

The distribution deal with Allfunds was spearheaded by Quaero’s head of Iberian businesses development, Amancio Perez, who joined from Swiss rival Pictet in November 2016. Perez will also oversee the fund group’s expansion in Latin America.

Quaero’s global head of business development, Thierry Callault, said: ‘The move will also stimulate our interest in regions such as Latin America where Amancio has significant funds industry experience and where we believe there is an appetite for long term alpha generation – and an interest in Quaero Capital funds.”

Callault added: ‘These new arrangements with Allfunds Bank represent a significant step in the development of our global business as it will enable fund selectors to more readily adopt our range of high conviction actively managed funds.’

Qauero is an independent firm with expertise in small caps, real assets and infrastructure investment in Europe.
