Sergio takes the leadership of a team which now counts nine investment professionals based in Zurich, London and Hong Kong. Until March this year, Sergio was Head of Emerging Market Debt at BlackRock where he spent ten years. Prior to joining Blackrock in 2012, he was Head of Emerging Markets Fixed Income and then CIO at BNP Paribas Investment Partners. Before 2004, he held trading and market-making positions in emerging market debt with a variety of institutions in New York, London and Paris.
The Emerging Market Fixed Income team has also been joined by Soledad Rocio Acoroni in Zurich, as Portfolio Manager. Soledad comes from Larrain Vial AM in Chile where she worked as Portfolio Manager focusing on LatAm corporate debt strategies, low-carbon ESG LatAm debt strategies and Argentinian sovereign and corporate debt strategies.
“With these two new hires, UBP marks its ambition to continue innovating in this asset class which is fundamental. We are convinced that emerging markets, and in particular EM fixed income, represent an important source of performance, especially as the rate-hiking cycle in EM began well ahead of OECD countries. Our capacities in ESG research are crucial on this segment and we are determined to continue innovating with new products thanks to seasoned talents with proven expertise.”Philippe Lespinard, Head of Asset Management (London) and Head of Alternative Fixed Income at UBP
