Independent and stable ownership structure
Working in partnership with our investors is central to our firm’s philosophy. As an independent, privately owned asset manager, we are able to take a long-term view and focus on creating sustainable value for our investors and our business.
Our ownership structure is designed to ensure our long-term stability and independence, as well as align our interests with those of our clients. Our largest shareholder is the Famsa foundation, which was established by our Chairman, Bernard Sabrier. Its goal is to act as a strategic long-term shareholder for the benefit of all stakeholders, while enabling us to make a real difference to society. Famsa makes substantial contributions to a wide range of projects in the charitable, educational, cultural and medical fields. Our senior management team and key employees are also shareholders in Unigestion, providing a strong alignment of interests with our clients. Finally, having well regarded institutional investors within our ownership structure ensures a high standard of corporate governance.
