OTCex Group has launched HPC Investment Partners (HPC IP) to create bespoke structured products for investment solutions that meet the specific needs of each client, whether institutional investor, private bank or family office.
Based on innovative quantitative modelling and research, these solutions incorporate such features as capital guarantees, improved returns, or leverage, among others.
As an entirely independent multi provider player, HPC IP is committed to designing bespoke products, working closely to fifteen or so investment banks, specialised issuers covering all asset classes in a number of currencies.
Implementation of this new line of business will be overseen by the two founding partners, Pierre-Yves Breton and Arthur Teixeira, both seasoned financial professionals. After several years in Paris and London at a leading provider of structured products and derivatives, they elected to join OTCex in order to develop their business in an entrepreneurial environment.
According to Breton and Teixeira: “The ambitious development strategy OTCex is pursuing in all areas of intermediation, as well as its highly international positioning, convinced us this alliance would be advantageous to realising our goal of becoming the one of the first European players in the structuring and sale of structured products designed for professional investors.” Indeed, the group has over 180 employees worldwide, with offices in Paris, London, Geneva, Hong Kong and New York.
Olivier Stephanopoli, Deputy CEO of OTCex, says: “The creation of HPC Investment Partners furthers the OTCex Group’s plan to diversify in the domain of intermediation, specifically by developing high value-added niche activities. We are thus delighted to welcome Pierre-Yves Breton and Arthur Teixeira, whose extensive expertise in the area of bespoke investment solutions should allow us to quickly become major players in this sphere.”
