France’s Group Tikehau has tapped Arnaud de Pesquidoux as partner and general counsel.
De Pesquidoux comes to Tikehau from the law firm Gide Loyrette Nouel, where he was a partner focusing on investment advisory and real estate financing activity for institutional and private clients. He has been regularly involved in pre-litigation and litigation issues.
Tikehau, which manages most of its assets through its fixed income asset management platform, Tikehau Investment Management, added €300 million to its AUM in the first half of this year bringing total AUM to €600 million. The firm said in a statement that the De Pesquidoux hire will “reinforce its legal capability in order to ease the monitoring of its investment activities” and will allow it to “offer its investors greater transparency in its management and higher expertise on regulatory topics.”
De Pesquidoux joins the firm as it launches its first real estate fund investing into sustainable commercial buildings with high environmental standards and looks “at the growing number of opportunities resulting from the internal changes in the real estate financing market.”
Group Tikehau is active on a large base of asset classes (debt, real estate, private equity) with specialized and extensive experience in debt markets: bonds, high-yield, loans, and private debt.
