The following specialized asset management boutiques are grouped together under Mediobanca Asset Management: Mediobanca Sgr in Italy, Polus Capital for illiquid credit and RAM for systematic equity funds. As we strive to provide highly specific, high-end products that make our offer even more distinctive, our objective is to progressively increase the penetration of our products in our affluent and private banking customers’ portfolios.
Established in 2017 with the merger of Banca Esperia into Mediobanca Spa, it now plays a key role in the definition of investment strategies and the development of innovative products.
When we acquired control of Cairn Capital in 2015, we took our first step in the creation of an asset management platform with prospective return on capital that would be determined by its degree of specialization.
Established in 2004 and based in London, Cairn Capital was our first acquisition for the Mediobanca Alternative Asset Management (MAAM) platform and enabled us to offer our customers exclusive illiquid credit investment and advisory products.
In February 2021 Cairn Capital, supported by Mediobanca S.p.A., has agreed terms for a strategic partnership with Bybrook Capital LLP, a specialist distressed credit manager based in London. The acquisition, followed by merger between the two entities into Polus Capital, fulfils the ambition to create a leading diversified alternative credit manager across public, private, performing and distressed investment opportunities. It brings together a top performing leveraged loan and alternative credit franchise with an outstanding stressed/distressed and special situations business.
