Mirabaud hires SLI’s Nicholson for European fund

Mirabaud Asset Management has appointed former Standard Life Investments manager Ken Nicholson to manage its European small and mid cap equity portfolios.

Nicholson will take up the role in September and will be joined by Trevor Fitzgerald, who previously managed pan-European small and mid cap equity sales at Credit Suisse.

Nicholson managed the Standard Life European Smaller Companies fund between 2007 and 2014, and was previously SLI’s investment director for smaller companies.

Mirabaud head of sales and marketing for UK and Northern Europe Paul Boughton says: “Ken and Trevor are well regarded in the market and will be an excellent addition to the existing stable of talent we have built over the past few years. In addition to many other strategies, we are also well known for our expertise in small and mid cap equities in the Swiss and Spanish

markets; to have this strategy in our fund range is a natural evolution.”
