Business Continuity at QUAERO CAPITAL

Portfolio management and client service to our clients

Dear Clients,

In these challenging times, we maintain the view we expressed last week (please see here). Basically, the news flow from this pandemic continues to deteriorate and the extraordinary measures taken by governments are likely to create much uncertainties and volatility in the short term anyway. Whereas it remains extremely difficult to make any meaningful forecasts, it seems to be a very violent but time limited shock to the world economy. Our conviction is therefore that fundamentals will be the determining aspect of the recovery. This should be a positive for active management and reinforces the relevance of our boutique “away from the crowds” investment model.

Investment Update

We would like to keep you up to date with our thinking in this period of extreme volatility and give you a quick update on our funds at QUAERO CAPITAL. In the fog of war, it is extremely hazardous to make any prediction and invariably, these tend to be highly contextual or misguided in a shock such as the one we have experienced this quarter.

We can however make a number of observations that we hope will be useful to our clients.

QUAERO CAPITAL has moved to new offices in London’s West End following its recent merger with Asian fund management specialist Tiburon Partners.

The firm’s decision is based on the expansion of QUAERO following the deal with Tiburon whose staff have moved to the new office in King Street. They have been joined by the existing London based QUAERO staff who, until recently, like the Tiburon staff, had offices close to the new location. The enlarged entity is already trading under the QUAERO CAPITAL brand.

The new office underpins QUAERO’s commitment to the UK with a newly created single business which is managing some EUR2.1billion. In line with their shared boutique philosophy the combined business will remain 100% employee owned and continues to focus on highly concentrated, actively managed, value strategies.

QUAERO CAPITAL CEO Jean Keller said, “We are delighted to be working with our new colleagues in great offices, in an excellent location. We have joined forces with other excellent value specialists whose skills and expertise – in Japanese and Asian equities – are wholly complementary. We are also excited to have a substantial presence in London – one of the key centres for investment talent in the world.”
