Jupiter forms alliance with Alfi to develop sales in France


UK-based Jupiter Asset Management has formed an alliance with third party fund marketer Alfi Partners to develop sales in France.

The agreement signals Jupiter’s intention to develop a significant presence in the French investment funds industry, focusing on distributing its Sicav funds to professional fund buyers and qualified investors.

France is the largest mutual fund market in Europe, with some EUR750bn (GBP675bn) of assets under management.

Jupiter has been developing its operations in Continental Europe for three years.

Its strategy in Europe is to focus initially on promoting the Jupiter Global Fund Sicav and Jupiter Merlin Funds Sicav to professional fund buyers.

Alfi Partners, which was established in 2004, is a third party marketer in Continental Europe, dedicated to assisting asset management companies in distributing their products to professional investors.

Edward Bonham Carter (pictured), chief executive of Jupiter Asset Management, says: “We have enjoyed considerable success developing our sales in Europe and are delighted to have teamed up with Alfi to build a presence in the very important French market.”

Francois Defferriere and Eric Bonneville, founding partners of Alfi Partners, said: “Jupiter has produced outstanding and consistent performance across a broad range of funds during the past 20 years. We are very proud and happy that Jupiter has chosen Alfi to help the company extend its reach further into Europe. For AIfi’s professional client base, this alliance will provide a great opportunity to easily access a range of top performing equity funds.”
