LGT Capital Partners to further strengthen investment capabilities in emerging and frontier markets

22 February 2021

LGT Capital Partners (LGT CP) announced today that it will expand its capabilities and enhance its offering for sovereign strategies in emerging and especially in frontier markets by adding a Nordic team of six experienced professionals with a long-standing track record to the fixed income competence center.

With this addition, LGT CP will enlarge its capabilities and offering for fixed income strategies in emerging and frontier markets, which is regarded as a highly attractive asset class, especially given the current low yield environment. The six professionals joining LGT CP have been investing in emerging market and frontier market sovereign strategies as a team with a proven track record based on profound experience over multiple market cycles. Their long-term investment views as well as their approach to systematic integration of ESG into the investment process is an excellent fit with LGT CP’s investment beliefs.

As a provider of skill-based investment solutions with a long-term investment horizon as well as a strong focus on ESG integration, LGT Capital Partners looks forward to providing a platform for the team to execute their investment approach and scale their solutions globally. “We are pleased that these experienced professionals have decided to join our platform.

Furthermore, we can provide our global institutional investor base with additional attractive investment opportunities going forward,” explains Pius Fritschi, Managing Partner LGT Capital Partners.
