Opalesque Industry Update - Banque Morval S.A. announced that it has awarded a specialist equity advisory mandate to Copernico Capital Partners effective 10 March, 2014. Copernico is appointed as the investment advisor to Banque Morval in its capacity as investment manager of Willerequity Latinamerica (WE Latam), a UCITS IV specialist equity investment fund of Willerfunds Management Company S.A. (Willerfunds S.A.).

Banque Morval is a Swiss private bank with roots in Switzerland beginning in 1974 when it was first estab-lished as an independent wealth management company.

Copernico is a Bermuda registered, independent emerging markets investment management company spe-cializing in Latin America. The firm was founded in 1999 to take advantage of distressed valuations and to ex-ploit large market inefficiencies in the region mainly through investments in distressed opportunities and spe-cial situations. Copernico invests across a variety of asset classes (both in dollars and local currency) including fixed income and equity securities, both private and sovereign.The operating team is based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, with offices in Uruguay and the US.

“We have a longstanding commitment to the region which started in 1995 when we launched our Willerequity Latinamerica fund. We expect the relationship with Copernico, a firm that has a seasoned team of investment professionals with an extensive network of regional contacts, a commitment to deep fundamental research and a culture of capital preservation, to provide a differentiated understanding and perspective of Latin American equities and enhance our awareness of calibrated opportunities that exist in the region”, states Albert Mandic, a member of management at Banque Morval and Managing Director of Willerfunds S.A.

Copernico expects the mandate to provide it with an opportunity to contribute its skills and longstanding invest-ment expertise in Latin America for the benefit of WE Latam’s investors while also extending its reach to UCITS investors.
