UBP strengthens its Global Emerging Markets Equities expertise

UBP strengthens its Global Emerging Markets Equities expertise

Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) announced today it has appointed Mathieu Nègre as Head of Emerging Market Equities. With this appointment, UBP is further reinforcing its expertise in the emerging market space while also ensuring continued cooperation between its regionally-focused EM equities teams.

Having previously worked at UBP as an emerging European equities fund manager, Mathieu worked at Aviva Global Investors from 2011, and then at Royal Bank of Canada Global Asset Management, where he was a global emerging markets portfolio manager. Mathieu returns to manage UBP’s new Global EM Equities strategy and will remain based in London.

Eftychia (La) Fischer, UBP’s Investment Management CEO, said of the appointment: “We have significant regional resources and expertise, as well as a wide range of strategies in EM equities, with investment teams based in London, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Istanbul.

Mathieu’s arrival will add significant expertise at global level, while also ensuring optimal cooperation between different regional teams for the ultimate benefit of investors.”

Mathieu Nègre added: “Emerging market equities have gone through a period of weakness but we believe they have great potential over the long term. An improving macro picture, low valuations, and greater appetite for reforms in China, India and a number of other emerging countries, are all combining to make this asset class an attractive investment opportunity. I am looking forward to re-joining UBP and working with the EM equities team during these exciting times for our asset class.”
