Unigestion expands southern Europe presence with Banco Inversis distribution agreement

Unigestion, the independent, specialist asset manager expands its presence in southern Europe by signing a distribution agreement with Banco Inversis.

The agreement with Inversis will see all of Unigestion’s UNI-Global SICAV sub funds and share classes, including flagship equity funds Europe and Japan and multi-asset funds Navigator and Alternative Risk Premia, registered on the second largest “open architecture” fund platform in Spain.

Unigestion has increased its focus on the Spanish intermediary market since 2016, having been predominantly focused on pure institutional clients.

The Spanish market is now one of the most important in southern Europe for Unigestion, where it is targeting a wide range of intermediaries including banks, insurance companies, large independent asset managers and family offices.

Establishing this partnership is in direct response to the demand for our strategies in the Spanish market. We are increasingly seeing opportunities in Spain, which has become a fast moving marketplace. Increasing our intermediary presence here is particularly important as we continue offering our risk-management approach to investors.

Andrea Di Nisio, Head of Southern Europe Intermediaries at Unigestion

Andrea Di Nisio, Head of Southern Europe Intermediaries at Unigestion added: „Our investment approach is perfectly suited to current market conditions, where investors continue to face a high level of uncertainty. As global growth is challenged and investors have sight of various risks, it’s only a matter of time until we experience prolonged periods of volatility. Over time, intelligent risk-taking will be key to delivering smoother, more consistent returns.“
