Benedicte Gravrand, Opalesque Geneva:
Gottex Fund Management Holdings, an independent global alternative asset management group, announced in March that it had agreed to acquire a majority interest in Frontier Investment Management, a UK-based profitable multi-asset investment manager with $550m of AuM across a range of liquid low cost multi-asset products.
Gottex, which is listed on the Swiss Stock Exchange, has now completed the acquisition of a majority stake in Frontier, and announced it today.
Michael Azlen, founder and CEO of Frontier, will retain a substantial equity interest in Frontier, continue to lead the Frontier business, and join Gottex as a senior executive in its multi-asset business.
According to the statement, "the Frontier acquisition will allow the combined group to provide a range of liquid multi-asset products, based on the established endowment style model used by the leading US university 'super endowments’. In addition, Frontier’s liquid and UK regulated investment products combined with Gottex’s existing active approach to macro markets will allow the combined firm to offer products globally, with plans for regulated US and pan-European liquid multi-asset products under consideration."
