Dexion Capital changes its name to Fidante

Monday, March 21, 2016
Opalesque Industry Update - Following Fidante Partners’ acquisition of Dexion Capital Holdings Limited in July 2015, the combined business announces that it is rebranding as Fidante Partners.

The business will operate as Fidante Partners and Fidante Capital. It comprises an international investment management business which is fully owned by Challenger Limited, an Australian securities exchange-listed company with a market capitalisation of AU$4.7bn (US$3.6bn) 2 and AUM of AU$57.6bn (US$42.0bn).

With funds under management of AU$41.6bn (US$30.3bn), Fidante Partners is an investment management company that partners with specialist asset management firms.

Fidante Partners provides access to high quality products across a variety of strategies. This is achieved through:

  • Raising and servicing investor capital for specialist asset managers via listed (through Fidante Capital) and unlisted fund vehicles; and
  • Forming long-term strategic alliances with specialist asset management teams to develop and grow their business.

Phil Peters, Managing Director of Fidante Partners said: “We have made significant progress in bringing the two businesses together since the acquisition last year. Today’s announcement is the culmination of a process that makes us well placed to increase our international distribution capabilities and expand our range of products. By adopting a “one brand” strategy, we can focus on growing and delivering one international investment management business.”

“We are confident that we can build on Fidante Partners’ current model of growing best in-class, specialist asset management firms and enabling them to focus on what they do best: manage investment portfolios.”

Robin Bowie, Executive Director of Fidante Partners said: “The Dexion name and our experienced capital markets team has long been associated with partnering with high calibre managers to provide investors with access to alternative investment strategies in a listed structure, and we look forward to further developing those capabilities under Fidante Capital. Joining forces with Fidante and being part of the successful Challenger Limited group will enable us to provide our investors and managers with an expanded service offering and wider distribution capabilities.”
