Mirabaud hires Axa Fram’s Narula as global equity head

Mirabaud Asset Management has hired Axa Framlington’s Anu Narula to lead its global equity team.

Narula’s new role will see him take over Mirabaud’s existing global equity products and mandates, as well as developing new investment offerings – especially in the high income space.

He was most recently lead manager of the Axa Framlington Global High Income fund and co-manager of the Axa Framlington Global Opportunities fund.

Mirabaud chief investment officer of equities Philip Watson says: “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.”

The move follows a series of appointments at Mirabaud over the past 18 months. The group hired BlackRock’s Dan Tubbs as head of global emerging markets, Aviva’s Andrew Lake as head of global high yield and BNP Paribas’ Pierre Pinel as CIO for balanced mandates and asset allocation funds.
