Together, the two organizations are delighted to announce a partnership which will combine the asset management expertise of Mirabaud in Alternative Investments, its long term conviction on emerging markets and Interpeace's dedication to help stabilise the emerging markets of the future.

“As a pioneer in ‘Alternative Investments’ with strong humanist values and a true long term approach, Mirabaud strongly believes that this partnership is the most efficient way to leverage the markets for the benefit of the greater good,” explains Lionel Aeschlimann, Partner and Head of Mirabaud Asset Management.

Scott M. Weber, Director-General of Interpeace, elaborates: “This innovative partnership will support much-needed peace building work in conflict-affected countries. This is a wonderful example of how the private sector can play a key role in making the world a safer place.”

Expanding on the Mirabaud approach, Lionel explains further: “Emerging markets will represent a larger part of world growth in years to come. However, they will remain subject to market volatility. Mirabaud consequently believes that investing in Emerging Markets through alternative investments will prove the most efficient way to generate superior risk adjusted return in the mid and long term.”
