Ostrum AM launches Hong Kong subsidiary

Paris-based Ostrum Asset Management is launching a Hong Kong subsidiary in order to grow its real assets private debt platform for institutional investors in the APAC region.

As part of the Paris-based firm’s wider strategy to expand its global platform for this class of asset, the subsidiary will be managed by David Prouteau, chief investment officer of real asset private debt.

The subsidiary will “provide investors with investment opportunities in the infrastructure real asset private debt space in Asia-Pacific, along with co-lending opportunities in partnership with Natixis’ corporate & investment banking division.”

According to Ostrum, which is an affiliate of Natixis Investment Managers, “Asia-Pacific has become the world’s largest infrastructure market in terms of both investment opportunities and investor demand.”

“Asia-Pacific alone is set to account for 60% of global infrastructure spending by 2025,” said Ostrum AM’s chief investment officer and deputy CEO Ibrahima Kobar.

“Hiring renowned experts into our teams in Apac is key to helping us develop a fund range suited to our clients’ needs over the months ahead,” he said.

Charles Regan will join Ostrum AM Hong Kong as head of Apac infrastructure real assets private debt, while Alistair Ho will take on the role of head of co-lending for Asia-Pacific in partnership with Natixis S.A’s corporate and investment banking division.
