Acquisition by Natixis of Euro Private Equity

Paris, France, May 14, 2013

In line with the development of its third party business, Natixis’ Private Equity has just taken over Euro Private Equity, a company based in Geneva.

With close to €1 billion of AuMs, Euro PE advises and manages private equity and infrastructure investment programs for institutional and private clients, including the largest Swiss pension funds. Recognized for non-listed advisory services with tailor-made advisory services and the selection of funds and joint investments, Euro PE designs investment solutions that meet investor needs.

The management of Euro PE was reinforced with a new partner, Benoit de Kerleau, who has joined the historical managers, Eric Deram and Marc-Antoine Voisard.

Via this operation, AuMs grew to more than €5 billion with 130 people in Paris, Geneva, New York and Singapore, in line with Natixis’ ambition to develop a long-term private equity advisory and management business.

Dominique Sabassier, Executive Director of Natixis’ Private Equity business: “The acquisition of Euro PE rounds out the “multi-affiliate” model applied to Natixis’ third party private equity business. It will reinforce the investment and tailor-made solutions strategy that include Dahlia Partners, as well as Caspian Private Equity, Eagle Asia Partners, Naxicap Partners, Seventure Partners and Alliance Entreprendre”.
