Management Team for Bellevue's BB Global Macro fund expanded
Bellevue Asset Management ("Bellevue") has recruited Alexis Dawance, a highly experienced equity specialist, as it continues to expand the Portfolio Management Team for its BB Global Macro fund.
The Management Team for the BB Global Macro fund, an absolute return strategy, is being further expanded with the recruitment of Alexis Dawance. Thanks to its excellent track record over the years, the fund's volume has steadily increased and now amounts to CHF 800 mn. The recruitment of Alexis Dawance will strengthen the team's expertise, particularly in equities.
Alexis Dawance previously worked as Head of Equities at MFM Mirante Fund Management, an independent asset manager in Lausanne, and was responsible, among other things, for a long/short equity fund. Prior to MFM, he was a founding partner of Global-Cap AG, an investment boutique, where he managed a global thematic equity strategy. His earlier career history includes positions at Merrill Lynch and Lehman Brothers. Alexis Dawance studied finance and management at the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Lausanne (HEC).
Lucio Soso has been the Senior Manager of the BB Global Macro fund ever since it was launched. He is supported on the fixed income side by Alexandrine Jaecklin and by Markus Peter for matters pertaining to asset allocation and product strategy. The fund delivered a full-year performance of 7.0% in 2019, which is at the upper end of its targeted performance range, with a realized volatility of a low 2.9%, which corresponds to a Sharpe ratio of 2.5.
Lucio Soso about the new team member: "We are pleased to have an equity investment specialist with such an impressive track record as Alexis Dawance join our team. With his expertise in long/short equity investing, he will truly strengthen our capabilities."
Alexis Dawance: "I'm very impressed by team's commitment to excellence and look forward to contributing to the fund's ongoing success. The fund covers a very broad investment universe, and I am excited to focus on equity asset class."
