Swiss independent investor Quareo Capital has launched a high conviction global equity fund for recent recruit Gianluca Monaco, who was formerly Citywire AA-rated.
The Geneva-based company will adopt an ‘investing away from the crowds’ mentality, which will seek to exploit systematic mistakes made by company managers and investors.
Monaco was previously with Ardevora Asset Management and held several Citywire ratings during his tenure. He was Citywire AA-rated in May 2017 and has 17 years of investment experience.
Monaco has an academic background in both cognitive psychology and economics, which will feed into the management of the fund.
The investment team will be further enhanced by the addition of two global equity analysts, Quaero Capital said.
