(LONDON 15th MARCH 2016) - Eastspring Investments (“Eastspring”), the US$131 billion Asian investment management arm of Prudential plc, one of Asia’s largest retail asset managers, has now started marketing its investment strategies in France via its Luxembourg based UCITS SICAV, which includes sub-funds authorised for offering in France and through a local partnership with French third-party marketer OUI-LINK INVESTMENT.
After opening a Luxembourg Management Company and a London branch, which have been operating for the last three years, Eastspring aims to continue its brand awareness building in Europe by targeting French professional investors. The firm will leverage OUI-LINK’s network and asset raising experience in order to communicate on both its unequalled presence throughout Asia and its wide range of SICAV funds, and create an institutional investor client base in France.
Eastspring has one of the largest investment capabilities in Asia, with more than 250 investment professionals located in 10 major Asian markets alongside offices in the US, Luxembourg and United Kingdom.
OUI-LINK INVESTMENT specialises in asset raising and promotion of high alpha and actively managed funds using traditional and niche strategies. They work with fund managers capable of producing consistent returns over time; as determined via a thorough due diligence process and assessment of investment strategies.
Having completed due diligence, OUI-LINK will begin marketing activities on Eastspring’s behalf in March 2016.
