CM-CIC ASSET MANAGEMENT COMPLETES THE ACQUISITION OF FUNDS MANAGED BY MILLEIS
CM-CIC Asset Management, the asset management company of Crédit Mutuel
Alliance Fédérale, and Milleis Banque, a wealth management bank, have today
completed the takeover by CM-CIC Asset Management of assets managed by Milleis
Investissements, the asset management company of Milleis Banque.
"This transaction will enable CM-CIC Asset Management to increase its assets
under management in equity, bond and diversified mutual funds, but also to
enhance its offering of high-performance conviction funds in all markets for
individuals, wealth management and private banking. This takeover of assets
will also expand the scope of CM-CIC Asset Management's expertise provided to
the various Crédit Mutuel Alliance Fédérale entities, both in France and
abroad, and to the various external customer segments", explained Olivier
VAILLANT, CEO of CM-CIC Asset Management.
Nicolas HUBERT, CEO of Milleis Banque, states that "the sale of Milleis
Investissements' assets to CM-CIC Asset Management is perfectly in line with
Milleis Banque's strategy of focusing on the wealth management of the bank's
clients. After Barclays France sold its wealth management activities and
changed its name to Milleis Banque, we are actively pursuing the repositioning
of our banking and management services offering, both in terms of investment
products and real estate credit or asset engineering, for example. The sale of
assets managed by Milleis Investissements thus gives us the opportunity to
focus on our expertise in portfolio management and in the selection of the
investment products most suitable to the needs of our clients in France".
At the same time, CM-CIC Asset Management and Milleis Banque have set up a
commercial partnership to provide Milleis Banque's clients with access to a
selection of funds from the wealth management and private banking range managed
by CM-CIC Asset Management, including the funds acquired.
