Former French Prime Minister Fillon To Join Tikehau Capital As Partner

Aug 24 2017 | 10:08pm ET

Tikehau Capital has named former French Prime Minister Francois Fillon to the alternative asset manager’s partnership.

Fillon ran as a presidential candidate in this year’s French elections. He will begin at Tikehau on September 1, according to a Reuters article, and is expected to help the company expand internationally. Fillon was prime minister from 2007 to 2012.

Tikehau plans to grow AUM to €20 billion by 2020, partly by acquiring other investment managers, and to this end, raised more than €700 million in a rights offering last month run by BNP Paribas, Citigroup and Natixis. 

Based in Paris, Tikehau was formed in 2004 by Antoine Flamarion and Mathieu Chabran and now manages more than €10.3 billion across various strategies, including private debt, equity and real estate. Fillon's appointment brings the number of Tikehau partners to 30, the article added.
