Switzerland-headquartered alternative investment specialist LGT Capital Partners has hired a Nordic team which it describes as having “a long-standing track record to the fixed income competence centre”.
The announcement does not name the six members of the team, nor give any indication where they previously worked.
LGT CP said that the team will “enlarge its capabilities and offering for fixed income strategies in emerging and frontier markets, which is regarded as a highly attractive asset class, especially given the current low yield environment”.
“Their long-term investment views as well as their approach to systematic integration of ESG into the investment process is an excellent fit with LGT CP’s investment beliefs.”
The firm has over $70bn in assets under management, with offices spanning from Sydney to New York.
