Swiss specialist asset manager Quaero Capital has agreed to merge with London-based counterpart Tiburon Partners, creating a group with over $2.3bn in assets.
Quaero Capital offers Luxembourg, Swiss and French regulated funds and manages $1.4bn in assets. Tiburon Partners focuses on Japanese and Asian value investing and oversees $900m in assets.
The merged entity will be entirely employee-owned and operate under the Quaero Capital brand. It will continue to focus on actively managed, value strategies. The deal is subject to regulatory approvals.
Commenting on the merger, Quaero Capital CEO Jean Keller said: “We are delighted to be joining forces with another excellent value specialist as our skills and expertise are wholly complementary. We are also excited to have a substantial presence in London – one of the key centres for investment talent in the world.”
Tiburon Partners senior partner Rupert Kimber added: “So, naturally, we are keen to partner with a firm which shares our philosophy, and can take our offering more widely around Europe.”
