Natixis’ alternative boutique reaches €1bn AUM cap
Darius Capital Partners, an alternative boutique owned by Natixis Global Asset Management and based in Paris, has seen its assets under management and advisory exceeding the €1bn threshold.
This follows the launch of a €100m fund of hedge funds dedicated to a French institutional investor.
“In the current market conditions, alpha generation has become scarcer. At Darius Capital Partners we have adapted our process to target new sources of absolute returns which we find in niche, idiosyncratic strategies to complement our focus on liquid alternatives.
“Financial disintermediation is another area where we identify managers taking advantage of a secular shift, through Direct Lending for instance. We have also allocated new resources to the Real Assets space, where our due diligence process and expertise in manager identification are well suited to the analysis of investment opportunities” said Mathieu Klein, CIO and co-founder of Darius Capital Partners.
Darius Capital Partners has been founded in 2004 and is part of Natixis GAM since 2011.
