Twelve Capital to manage Falcon Private Bank ILS business


Zurich-based investment firm Twelve Capital is to assume the investment management function of the insurance-linked securities (ILS) business of the Swiss wealth management boutique Falcon Private Bank.

This will primarily affect investment funds domiciled and regulated in Luxembourg and Switzerland.
With this collaboration and the integration of the existing management team, Twelve Capital will guarantee continuity for existing Falcon Private Bank clients and ensure that the ILS activities are optimally integrated into Twelve Capital’s core business.
Both parties have agreed not to comment on the details of the transaction, which is subject to approval by the supervisory authorities in Switzerland and Luxembourg.
This move results in rapid growth for Twelve Capital. Founded in 2010, the investment manager reported USD1bn assets under management at the beginning of 2013. With this current expansion, it now brings the company close to the USD2bn mark.
“We are delighted to have found an outstanding partner for our ILS business in Twelve Capital. The firm fully meets our expectations in terms of expertise, drive and tailored solutions. This solution offers our longstanding clients and our experienced fund management team continuity, innovation potential and interesting growth opportunities,” says Eduardo Leemann, chief executive officer of Falcon Private Bank.
Urs Ramseier (pictured), chairman of the board of Twelve Capital, says: “We are proud to play a part in the consolidation of the market for insurance-linked securities. We welcome the additional expertise from Falcon Private Bank within our team and are looking forward to a successful working relationship. We are confident that we will be able to further develop these investment funds in the best interests of the existing investors.”
