The global asset management business of Aviva has teamed up with Capital Strategies Partners.
CSP, which has $5bn (€4.5bn) in assets under intermediation, will focus on distributing Aviva Investors’ credit, equity, liquidity, multi-asset and real asset capabilities through wholesale and institutional channels.
Aviva Investors said the deal completes its geographical coverage of Iberia and Latin America; and complements its existing partnership with Excel Capital, which represents Aviva Investors in institutional markets in Chile, Peru and Colombia.
Divide and conquer
Charlie Jewkes, head of global financial institutions at Aviva Investors, will work with CSP in Brazil and Uruguay.
While, head of southern Europe, Paolo Sarno will work with CSP on distribution in Spain and Portugal.
Jewkes commented: “As global macro, socioeconomic and regulatory changes continue to accelerate opportunities for international asset managers in the Latin American and Iberian regions, we look forward to bringing our full suite of capabilities to clients in those markets.
“The combination of growing personal wealth and some of the most forward-looking long-term savings reforms make the region extremely attractive.”
