In this episode of our Private Markets Miniseries, we explore a French firm, whose growth has now firmly established it as a major force in the global alternatives industry.

Started in 2004 in Paris by Mathieu Chabran and Antoine Flamarion, then aged 28 and 31 respectively, with €4m of assets compiled from personal savings, friends and family, today it manages over €40 billion. 

Mathieu explains their motivation to leave leading investment banks to build a business specialising in private credit, private equity, real assets, and capital markets strategies. He discusses their first deal, their approach to the partners with whom they invest (such as TotalEnergies, Unilever and Airbus) as well as their equity partners such as Temasek, Morgan Stanley and most recently, SFI Investments, the investment vehicle which manages the wealth of the family behind AB InBev. 

In a wide-ranging conversation, Mathieu explains the importance of committing their own capital to their transactions, the compelling opportunities in Europe’s mid-market, capital allocation, sustaining an entrepreneurial culture, and why a firm specialising in private assets chose to list as a public entity!
