Tue, 04/03/2014 - 06:02

Banque Morval has awarded a specialist equity advisory mandate to Copernico Capital Partners effective 10 March 2014.

Copernico is appointed as the investment advisor to Banque Morval in its capacity as investment manager of Willerequity Latinamerica (WE Latam), a UCITS IV specialist equity investment fund of Willerfunds Management Company SA.
 
Banque Morval is a Swiss private bank with roots in Switzerland beginning in 1974 when it was first established as an independent wealth management company. Banque Morval obtained its current banking status in 1989 and is regulated by the FINMA (Swiss Federal Supervisory Authority of Financial Markets).
 
Copernico is a Bermuda registered, independent emerging markets investment management company specialising in Latin America. The firm was founded in 1999 to take advantage of distressed valuations and to exploit large market inefficiencies in the region mainly through investments in distressed opportunities and special situations. Copernico invests across a variety of asset classes (both in dollars and local currency) including fixed income and equity securities, both private and sovereign. The operating team is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with offices in Uruguay and the US.
 
“We have a longstanding commitment to the region which started in 1995 when we launched our Willerequity Latinamerica fund. We expect the relationship with Copernico, a firm that has a seasoned team of investment professionals with an extensive network of regional contacts, a commitment to deep fundamental research and a culture of capital preservation, to provide a differentiated understanding and perspective of Latin American equities and enhance our awareness of calibrated opportunities that exist in the region,” says Albert Mandic, a member of management at Banque Morval and managing director of Willerfunds SA.
