London Stock Exchange Welcomes Mobius Investment Trust to the Premium Segment of the Main Market
Today, London Stock Exchange welcomes Mobius Capital Partners, the emerging and frontier markets investment manager, to open its markets and highlight the launch of the Mobius Investment Trust, a newly established closed-ended investment company. Listed on the Main Market, this new and innovative trust will provide access to a highly specialised active ownership strategy focusing on companies with resilient business models and the potential for operational and ESG (environmental, social and governance) improvements.
Mobius Capital Partners was founded in May 2018 by pioneering investor Dr. Mark Mobius, alongside his ex-colleagues Carlos Hardenberg and Greg Konieczny.
Mark Mobius, Partner of Mobius Capital Partners, commented:
"Almost thirty years after launching one of the first mutual funds dedicated to emerging markets, I was thrilled to participate in this morning's Market Open and celebrate the successful launch of the Mobius Investment Trust on London Stock Exchange. The whole team at Mobius Capital Partners want to thank all of our shareholders for their support. We now look forward to capitalising on the significant investment opportunity that exists across emerging and frontier markets."
Jefferies International acted as sponsor and sole global coordinator in relation to the Issue, while Scott Harris provided support as intermediaries offer adviser. Stephenson Harwood, Frostrow and Quill also supported the successful IPO.
