Swiss asset manager Quaero Capital has selected third party fund distributor Peak Capital to distribute some of its funds in Asia.
Quaero’s funds, to be distributed in Asia, include: Family Enterprise Fund, a European small-mid cap fund; Yield Opportunities Fund, an emerging markets fund managed by Robert Lloyd George; and an infrastructure fund run by Mark Ebert.
Quaero CEO Jean Keller said: “We are surprised and delighted with the anecdotal feedback we’ve received following conversations we have had with investors in the region. I’ve known Simon Powell at Peak Capital for many years. With Simon, and his colleague Mike Smith at the helm, I am sure we will meet success in promoting Quaero throughout the region.”
Peak Capital’s Mike Smith said: “Jean and Simon have asked me to take forward the Quaero business in Asia and I’m delighted to be able to do so, particularly given the interest that has been generated by the European team and their family enterprise focus.
“Not unnaturally, the strategy has tapped into the natural empathy that Family Offices here in Asia have towards the highly successful and sustainable businesses that families in Europe have developed over many decades.”
