Alantra advised Lausanne-headquartered Vaudoise Assurances Holding SA on the acquisition of a pair of Swiss asset managers based in Bern: Dr Meyer Asset Management AG, the fund manager of Swiss open-end real estate funds Immo Helvetic and Good Buildings, and Berninvest AG, the fund manager of a Swiss real estate foundation.
Vaudoise Assurances is a top ten Swiss composite insurer with over CHF 1.0 bn of premiums, operating predominantly in the French-speaking part of the country. The two target companies jointly manage assets of CHF 1.4 bn (predominantly residential buildings in the greater area of Bern, Switzerland).
The transaction responds to Vaudoise Assurance’s strategy of strengthening its third party asset management capabilities. Completion is subject to regulatory approval by the relevant Swiss authorities.
