A multi-affiliate business model and multiple core competencies
(as at 31/08/2023)
Environmental and societal challenges are opportunities to reconsider the future. Identifying drivers of change and understanding how they will fashion global growth and ultimately influence long-term financial performance is at the heart of La Française’s mission. The group’s forward-looking investment strategy is built upon this conviction.
Organized around two business lines, financial and real estate assets, La Française has developed a multi-boutique model to serve institutional and retail clients in France and abroad.
La Française, aware of the importance of the extensive transformations occurring in our increasingly digital and connected world, has created an innovation platform which brings together the new activities identified as key businesses of tomorrow.
La Française Group has developed a multiboutique approach based on two cornerstones - real estate and financial assets.
A European platform with more than €31,8bn in assets under management (as at 31/03/2023), La Française is a key player in this asset class.
It offers a comprehensive range of real estate expertise both in terms of investment (Core, Core plus, Value added) and types of assets, with a strong specificity in office space and residential.
In a break from traditional benchmarked management, La Française Group’s financial assets division provides access, via its historic La Française Asset Management (LFAM)subsidiary, to niche fundamental expertise with fixed income solutions (fixed maturity funds, subordinated debt, etc.), equity solutions which are resolutely sustainable by nature and cross assets. In addition, it also offers quantitative management services through La Française Systematic Asset Management GmbH, alternative financing with Acofi and private equity and innovative management expertise with New Alpha Asset Manager.
Customer satisfaction: the priority
La Française strives to develop solutions that meet the challenges and needs of a diverse client base. A network of qualified local sales professionals distributes La Française products and services across the globe.
