The deal will create an international investment management business with some US$4.8 billion under management and advisory mandates. Atlas' wealth management business, including Deltec Bank & Trust, a wholly-owned private bank in the Bahamas, is not part of the deal and will continue to operate without change.

Sciens Capital Management manages private equity, venture capital, real estate, aviation assets and funds of hedge funds assets institutional investors.
