We tailor our investment solutions to our clients, based on our in-depth knowledge of them, in order to provide them with the optimal balance of risk, return and liquidity. In 2020, our fundraising totaled a record €2.9 billion.
A close relationship
Constant dialogue and custom reporting: we foster close relationships with our investors and expand our investor base every year. Together with our long-standing partners – over 250 institutional investors, sovereign funds, insurance companies and pension funds – we attract new investors ready to invest in the champions of tomorrow. At the same time, we give our retail clients exposure to the same returns that institutional investors achieve in our private equity business.

Covering all bases in private equity
For our Investment Partners team, transparency is crucial for success. Our relationships with our investors are based on mutual trust, as shown by the long-term commitment they make to us across several generations of funds and by their willingness to accompany us into new investment strategies. We provide them with the diversification they need, unique in the market through our three asset classes and nine areas of expertise.
Investment Partners: a personalized service
Supported by our solid growth, we are enhancing the services we provide to investors to offer them a first-rate client experience. The Investment Partners team now consists of 30 people in Paris, Frankfort, New York and Seoul. Our presence across three continents (Europe, Asia and North America) demonstrates how much we value having close relationships with our investors. As part of the same strategy, we are stepping up efforts to recruit even more experts, particularly in the United States.
Mandates: tailored portfolios
Mandates are a real potential area of growth for us. They allow investors to put together portfolios that address their needs precisely, either using a single strategy or combining different asset classes, strategies (primary- and secondary-market) and geographies.
Institutional investors are showing acute interest in mandates’ flexibility and in the benefits of our investment platform, through which we can offer a genuine one-stop-shop service. We also stand out through the diversity of the assets managed by our teams, combined with our ability to access high-quality asset managers via our Private Funds platform.
