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”.
