Investment summary

During the past year, DeA Capital has exploited its financial strength and leading Italian position in alternative asset management (AAM) to grow and internationalise its AAM platform, extend its customer reach and enhance its product capability. The late 2019 agreements with Quaestio Group marked a further important step in this process and, despite COVID-19, the expanded platform has continued to grow AUM organically year to date.

Industry outlook

Economic uncertainty remains high as a result of the pandemic and this may affect DeA’s ability to enhance portfolio values and continue to raise funds. On a longer view, the increasing breadth and strength of the AAM platform and balance sheet should leave it well placed to benefit once recovery takes hold.
