Takaud, a Bahrain-based provider of savings, investment and pensions, has joined forces with Swiss private bank Mirabaud & Cie to provide a wealth management offering for its affluent clients in the GCC market.

The collaboration will expand Takaud’s investment platform through the addition of Mirabaud fund range, including some of the top performing flag-ship funds.

As part of the partnership, both the firms will work together to develop new investment solutions in the area of corporate retirement services to serve Takaud’s clients across the MENA region.

Takaud CEO Luc Metivier said: "The newly signed partnership with their fully owned subsidiary in Dubai Mirabaud (Middle East) signifies Takaud’s great momentum and potential as the regional ‘go-to advisor’ for savings, pensions and wealth management solutions."

Mirabaud Dubai CEO Olivier Honsberger said: "To meet the demand of Takaud’s regional clients for diversified wealth management solutions, we will be placing the entire range of Mirabaud funds on Takaud’s platform supported by our investment philosophy, thus significantly expanding the universe of investment options available to their clientele, in terms of asset classes, currencies, sectors and geographies."
