Tikehau Capital creates its first European Long-Term Investment Fund in partnership with Banca March in Spain to offer private markets solutions on Energy transition

 Tikehau Capital, the alternative asset management and investment group, announces today the creation of it first European Long-Term Investment Fund (ELTIF) dedicated to Banca March private clients in Spain. Banca March is the only Spanish bank 100% family owned, specialising in Private Banking with c. a century experience investing in the real economy, and more than 10 years co-investing in real economy projects alongside its clients.
This ELTIF fund dedicated to the energy transition will be targeting all Banca March clients, offering them an access to private equity investment solutions focused on energy transition, thus replicating Tikehau Capital’s Energy Transition fund launched with Total SA in 2018 which offers a differentiated strategy seeking to offer strong financial returns while accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy.
The European ELTIF label was created in 2015 at the initiative of the European authorities and applies to Alternative Investment Funds (AIF) with an objective to provide long term financing solutions to the “real economy”. Complementing Tikehau Capital’s offer, it is designed to enable institutional and private investors across Europe, and more particularly savers, to invest in very long-term assets, including unlisted assets - among which private equity.
After Banca March’s deep analysis and approval to conduct this new co-investment project alongside its clients, and following the successful partnership with Fideuram - Intesa Sanpaolo Private Banking, Italy's largest private banking network, this is Tikehau Capital's second initiative aiming to address private investors’ needs.
Carmen Alonso, Head of Iberia at Tikehau Capital, said: " We are pleased to partner up with one of the best reputed private banks in Spain, Banca March, with whom we share the same philosophy of co-investing alongside our clients and strong alignment of interests.”
Thomas Friedberger, Co-Chief Investment Officer and Chief Executive Officer of Tikehau Investment Management added: “We are proud that Banca March has decided to partner with us to satisfy its private clients’ appetite for private equity investment supported by a strong ESG conviction. Driving energy transition through long-term initiative to create growth is key to our company.”
Juan Antonio Roche, Head of Products Area at Banca March, said: “It is our pleasure to announce the partnership with Tikehau, a leading investor in Europe that shares with us a common understanding of servicing clients as much as the financial opportunity behind energy transition. We could not think of a better time to move ahead with the changes in progress, a world that after the COVID-19 will reinforce and accelerate the shift towards a more sustainable energy system. Tikehau Capital’s Energy Transition fund contributes with impact today while investing in already profitable companies that are active in this growing business”
