Union Bancaire Privée (UBP) has announced the appointment of Mathieu Nègre as head of Emerging Market Equities.

Nègre has previously worked at UBP as an emerging European equities fund manager.

He also worked at Aviva Global Investors and at Royal Bank of Canada Global Asset Management, where he was a global emerging markets portfolio manager.

Nègre returns to manage UBP’s new Global EM Equities strategy and will remain based in London.

Eftychia Fischer, UBP’s Investment Management CEO, said : “We have significant regional resources and expertise, as well as a wide range of strategies in EM equities, with investment teams based in London, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Istanbul.

“Mathieu’s arrival will add significant expertise at global level, while also ensuring optimal cooperation between different regional teams for the ultimate benefit of investors.”

Nègre added: “Emerging market equities have gone through a period of weakness but we believe they have great potential over the long term.

“An improving macro picture, low valuations, and greater appetite for reforms in China, India and a number of other emerging countries, are all combining to make this asset class an attractive investment opportunity.

“I am looking forward to re-joining UBP and working with the EM equities team during these exciting times for our asset class.”
