H2O Asset Management, approaching €30bn of assets under management, has grown significantly over the past 3 years and is now accelerating its development through new strategies and across geographies.
The affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers has also recently opened new offices in Monaco and Singapore, and now Paris.
"Our growth ambitions remain unchanged but with a greater emphasis on: equities (Long/Short and Long Only), benchmarked fixed income funds, thematic funds and our range of Barry funds, which are our expertise with lower capacity constraints ", said chief executive officer, Bruno Crastes.
The H2O Group built on this momentum to reinforce its teams and strengthen its organization. Three investor relations managers, under the leadership of Mehdi Rachedi, have joined the company, as well as Jean-Christophe Morandeau, member of the Executive Committee, in charge of legal and compliance functions. He will co-lead H2O AM Europe with Loïc Guilloux, who also sits on the Executive Committee and is responsible for the company's strategic development.
