Exclusive: H2O AM, Quadra Capital strike alts fund development deal

London-based boutique H2O Asset Management, led by Bruno Crastes and affiliated to Natixis, has signed a partnership with Quadra Capital Partners, headed by Guillaume Touze, to develop new alternative strategies, InvestmentEurope can reveal.

This follows the arrival of Quadra Captial’s partner and portfolio manager Paul-Georges Moucan at H2O Asset Management in March. Moucan was also former Amundi’s global equity head.

According to the terms of the deal, H2O AM will distribute the Quadra Capital Global Equity Alpha fund, which will continue to be run by Paul Georges Moucan and Sébastien Gangnat-Tunzini.

Both will join H2O Monaco, a new entity of H2O group established in the Principality of Monaco and which was granted an asset management license by Monegasque regulator CCAF on 25 August 2017.

The investment philosophy of the Quadra Capital Global Equity Alpha fund will remain unchanged. The fund will still be a sub-fund of Quadra’s Luxembourg-domiciled Ucits Sicav, which, however, will be rebranded to H2O Lux Invest Global L/S Opportunities.

The fund will also continue to be promoted by Quadra Capital towards existing and forthcoming investors.
