Argos IM rebrands as Quaero Capital

Geneva based boutique Argos Investment Managers is changing its name to Quaero Capital.

The firm said the rebranding is driven by its continuing international expansion and a growing concern that its original name may lead to confusion with other businesses in the sector.

Established in 2005 in Geneva, Quaero Capital is a boutique offering a range of actively managed, high-conviction funds with a commitment to fundamental research and original thinking.

The firm’s fund range currently tallies 12 investment available through segregated mandates or through investment funds, all incorporated into two umbrella Sicavs domiciled in Luxembourg.

Quaero Capital is fully owned by its employees. Its founding partners, Cristofer Gelli and Philip Best, were joined in 2011 by CEO Jean Keller (pictured) and, in 2014, by head of Development Thierry Callault.

Co-founder and chairman Cristofer Gelli commented : “We are creating an environment where talented investment professionals work in a culture which promotes investment excellence. We believe that this is the key to delivering consistent and repeatable returns over the long term.”

Quaero Capital currently manages CHF600m  (€551.8m) with a staff of 27 in 4 locations across Europe (Geneva, Zurich, Paris and London).
