Mirabaud Asset Management has collaborated with Switzerland based sustainable investment solutions firm Conico Explorers to launch small cap fund.
Conico, jointly with Mirabaud Asset Management, will take the engagement lead with the underlying companies in the portfolio. The basis of this engagement is to show these companies the long term benefits they can unlock while improving their ESG practices.
Mirabaud Asset Management and Conico will look to actively contribute towards meeting the sustainable development goals (SDGs) of the United Nations within the Swiss small capitalisation segment in which are embedded the mid-cap leaders of tomorrow.
Bertrand Bricheux, global head of Sales & Marketing, at Mirabaud Asset Management said: "We are convinced that the financial markets, as well as the industry, have the power to promote sustainable business practices and address global social and environmental concerns. It is this conviction that guides our efforts to mobilize capital towards creating a positive impact and improve the current ESG picture of these smaller companies."
