Gottex Adds Frontier To Multi-Asset Biz.

Mar 20 2013 | 12:21pm ET

Swiss fund of hedge funds Gottex Fund Management has taken a majority stake in Frontier Investment Management.

Gottex will pay for the US$550 million firm with a combination of about 1.2 million Swiss francs in Gottex shares and further cash payments over the next two years, depending on Frontier's performance.

Frontier founder and CEO Michael Azlen will retain a "substantial" stake in his firm and will be named a senior executive in Gottex's multi-asset business, which Frontier joins, in addition to retaining his role as head of Frontier, which will see no changes to senior management or its investment team, and which will continue to offer its current product range. Azlen will also be charged with expanding Gottex's multi-asset business in Europe.

The deal requires regulatory approval.

"The combination of Gottex and Frontier establishes one of the leading alternatives-oriented multi-asset investment teams, which will allow us to offer our clients an enhanced range of investment solutions in this fast-growing area," Bill Landes, chief investment officer at US$7 billion Gottex, said.
