Eurazeo, a Paris-based investment company with €35 billion (US$37.3 billion) in assets under management, has partnered with fintech platform iCapital to increase wealth managers’ access to private markets opportunities.
Through the partnership, Eurazeo will leverage iCapital’s technology and iCapital Marketplace in distributing its suite of alternative offerings globally. The first launch will be a feeder fund into Eurazeo’s new impact fund focused on transition infrastructure.
Eurazeo focuses on private equity, private debt, real estate and infrastructure strategies, and is invested in around 600 companies.
“Based on our 20-year successful track record in France, we believe iCapital will be instrumental in replicating this strategy in Europe and beyond,” says Luc Maruenda, head of wealth solutions at Eurazeo. “With its leading technology and global positioning, iCapital was a natural choice to enhance the range of investment solutions for our wealth managers globally.”
