Unigestion Joins MFEX Platform In Distribution Push

Aug 22 2017 | 10:12pm ET

Swiss asset manager Unigestion has expanding its distribution network by joining global fund platform MFEX, providing access to all of Unigestion’s Uni-Global family of sub-funds and share classes to investors in 30 countries.

The step is the latest move by the Swiss boutique to expand in the intermediary space, the company said in a statement, following the March registration with Allfunds Bank. Both agreements provide a wider range of investors with access to the company’s four areas of expertise: risk-managed equity, multi asset, private equity and alternatives investing.

MFEX is one of Europe’s largest mutual fund distribution platforms, providing trading, custody, rebate and documentation services. MFEX has distribution agreements with 775 international fund companies from 40 legal domiciles covering over 50,000 funds.

Founded 45 years ago, Geneva-based Unigestion manages approximately $23.9 billion across equity, hedge fund, private asset and cross-asset solutions for institutional and high net worth investors, including equities, alternatives, private equity and multi-asset strategies.
