On January 1, 2022, Mirabaud appointed Global Head of Equities at Mirabaud Asset Management Anu Narula as an Equity Partner of the group. Anu Narula has been working at Mirabaud for nearly a decade. He is also a member of the firm’s Asset Management Executive Committee.
A part of his responsibilities at the Swiss firm includes managing the Mirabaud Sustainable Global High Dividend USD Accounts and the Mirabaud Sustainable Global Focus Account.
The bigger of the two is the $970 million Mirabaud Sustainable Global Focus Account, with a return of 55.1% over the last three years to the end of November, compared to the Citywire’s Equity-Blend sector with an average of 43.7%.
“Anu has been a key figure in our Asset Management business since his arrival in 2013; his continued engagement and commitments to the business have been an active part of our growth and success story,” said Lionel Aeschlimann, Managing Partner of the Group and CEO of Mirabaud Asset Management. “As such, his progression to Equity Partner is only natural and we look forward to working together to continue the Group’s development and progression in all our markets.”
Prior to joining Mirabaud Asset Management, he started his career in 2001 at Morley Fund Management on the Global Equity team. From 2006 to 2008, Narula worked as a Portfolio Manager at Cadwyn Global. In 2008, he was the Global Equities Portfolio Manager at AXA Framlington. At AXA Framlington, Narula was the Lead Manager of the Global Equity High Income Fund and co-manager of the Global Opportunities Fund.
Anu Narula earned a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from the London School of Economics as well as an MBA from the London Business School. He is also a Chartered Financial Analyst Charterholder.
Narula joined Mirabaud in 2013 as Head of Global Equities at Mirabaud Asset Management. “Anu’s strong commitment to responsible investing chimes with Mirabaud’s core values of independence, conviction, responsibility, and passion”, added Lionel Aeschlimann.
Anu Narula will become the fifth Equity Partner of the Mirabaud Group and the second partner to be selected from its Asset Management business line. In December 2020, Mirabaud promoted its Head of Credit and Fixed Income Andrew Lake as a Partner. Aside from Narula and Lake, the Equity Partners also include Etienne d’Arenberg, Thiago Frazao, and Alain Baron, who are Heads of Wealth Management for the UK, Latin America, the Middle East, and North Africa respectively.
