Paul Newsome is head of portfolio management at Unigestion, a Switzerland-based asset manager with a global private markets platform.
Paul has been at the firm for two decades, during which he has set up its private markets operation in North America, and has been instrumental in establishing its directs, co-investment and secondaries programmes.
In this discussion with Ross Butler of marketing services consultancy Linear B Group, Paul reveals the international growth story behind Unigestion’s expansion across private markets investment, how the asset manager makes effective investment-decisions (with reference to their proprietary AI tool), his reading of the prevailing market volatility and what it means for investors and the asset class, and his outlook for further industry growth.
