Mirabaud Asset Management hires ESG head

Geneva-based Mirabaud Asset Management has appointed Hamid Amoura as head of ESG.

Amoura joins Mirabaud Asset Management from BNP Paribas Cardif, where for the past 12 years he held various ESG investment related roles lately as an equity portfolio manager and central coordinator for the ESG implementation across BNP Paribas Cardif’s internal range of funds.

Amoura will report to Mirabaud AM’s head of investments Umberto Boccato and will be working alongside David Jeannet, former Mirabaud Group’s SRI officer since 2017, who joins now Amoura’s team.

Umberto Boccato said: “We are delighted to have Hamid on board. He brings deep expertise within the field of ESG itself, as well as solid experience working with investment teams to integrate it in the investment process. The appointment also reflects a growing demand from clients, who increasingly view ESG as an integral part of the investment solutions they require.”

Hamid Amoura added: “It is a privilege to join a focused and specialised investment boutique such as Mirabaud Asset Management. With almost 200 years of history in the group, Mirabaud’s DNA is clearly earmarked as sustainable. Its social values are at the heart of the firm and I am thrilled to further build on the work that has already been put in place to further refine and expand Mirabaud’s ESG capabilities.”

Mirabaud Asset Management has been a signatory of the UN Principles for Responsible Investment for 18 years.
