Evli Fund Management Company has formed a distribution partnership with TPM Blue Associates to market its strategies in France.
Blue Associates is a Third-Party Marketing company. Created and developed by two asset management professionals, it combines more than 50 years of experience in investment promotion in France, Belgium, Luxembourg and Monaco. Blue Associates aims to help asset managers develop their client base in France and other European countries with professional clients.
“Evli's ambition is to offer its long-only equity and European and Nordic corporate bond strategies, which have won numerous awards, to an increasingly broad and international clientele. We have been mapping the French market for several years and today we believe that the conditions are in place to step up our distribution efforts to French institutional investors seeking active and performing ESG-constrained investment management”, says Petter von Bonsdorff, Head of International Business Development at Evli Bank Plc.
Christian de Bausset and Denis Chasteauneuf, founders of Blue Associates, adds: "In a low interest rates environment, Nordic bonds seem attractive and Evli's expertise in bond management is particularly useful in order to diversify French professional investors’ portfolios. In addition, Evli's equity management specific features have caught our attention. We are delighted with this new partnership.”
