French boutique launches collective AM branch

Paris based Auris Gestion has launched Auris Investment Managers fully dedicated to collective asset management for institutional clients.

The newly launched subsidiary has €450m in assets under management while Auris Gestion’s total AUM amount to €1.2bn.

The firm says this move is in line with its evolution. Auris Gestion, historically a private wealth manager, has started to develop activities in collective management in 2008 and strengthened this business line through a merger with Alexandre Finance in 2015.

Auris Investment Managers will be co-managed by Patrick Serre and Alexandre Hezez with a team including five fund managers, four analysts and two commercial directors.

The firm currently runs three funds : Evolution Europe (all caps European equities), Fondation Equilibre (multi-beta management) and Auris Sélection Défensive (European corporate bonds).

The wealth management business of Auris Gestion, relying on an open architecture structure, will still be run under the brand Auris Gestion Privée.
