A major expertise in asset management

The Exane Group's asset management business is built around three asset management companies, Exane asset management, Ellipsis AM, and Ixios Asset Management whose areas of expertise extend the Group's business lines. They are based respectively on the equity and fixed-income universes, and thematic management.








Founded in 2001, Exane asset management is a portfolio management company specialising in stock-picking within the European equity investment universe.

Our management team stands out for its strong expertise and the distinct personalities of its portfolio managers. The constant improvement of our investment process and our stringent risk management contribute to the resilience of the alpha generated by our experts.











A pioneer in absolute return in Europe, Exane asset management hallmark expertise has been developed over the years along two key directions: absolute return mainly through collective funds and European equities with a recognised presence in long-only investing.


Our specialist knowhow is deployed through a focused range of products designed to respond to the needs of our diversified European client base, mainly composed of institutional investors, multi-managers and private banks.
