La Française Group has obtained AIFM approval for all its management companies.
By capitalising on its experience in the registration of UCITS funds internationally and now its AIFM status, the La Française Group is able to extend its services across Europe.
The following Group management companies have obtained AIFM approval:
- La Française AM International (LFI)
- La Française Investment Solutions LFIS
- La Française REM
- La Française des Placements
- La Française Inflection Point
- New Alpha AM
As Alternative Investment Fund (AIF) managers, the companies will be able to manage AIFs in an EU member state other than the country where they are based (management passport) and market managed AIFs to professional investors in another EU member state (marketing passport).
Patrick Rivière, CEO of La Française, says: “Our approach is part of the continuation of our international ambitions. We will now be able to offer UCITS funds as well as AIFM funds, whether these are managed by entities in the group or by its affiliates, to all European investors.”
