Mobius Capital Partners, the emerging markets boutique, has further expanded with appointment of senior analyst and ESG investment consultant. This news was confirmed to InvestmentEurope by a spokesperson.
Fergus Argyle has joined as senior investment analyst after previously working as senior analyst at Somerset Capital Management for four years covering all markets and regions but with a focus on North Asia, Korea and the technology sector. Prior to that he worked at Herald Investment Management, a global technology fund, and begun his career as a graduate at BlackRock, where he spent five years.
Usman Ali has also joined as investment analyst. Previously, he was a sustainable investment analyst working on a consultancy basis for East Capital, a Swedish emerging and frontier markets specialist, and Degroof Petercam Asset Management, as well as a single family office. He also worked at Caravel Management as a sustainable investment analyst investing in emerging and frontier market equities.
The two new appointments bring Mobius’ investment team to six people following the recent appointment of Kunal Desai, former head of Indian equities at Neptune Investment Management.
