Investment summary

DeA Capital has continued to be active in its direct investment portfolio in the opening months of FY17, returning to direct investment with a stake in a newly created and listed special purpose acquisition vehicle and a further reduction in its Migros stake. Q117 also saw further growth in AUM and a positive investment performance. Returning growth momentum to asset management and a diverse investment portfolio have the potential to create further value. Meanwhile the prospect of cash inflows as private equity fund investments mature provides a measure of protection against any rise in market volatility.

Industry outlook

DeA's alternative asset exposure has attractions in the context of Italy's subdued economic outlook. The potential for significant realisations from maturing private equity funds over the next three to four years means that €130-150m could be available for reinvestment in new fund launches, co-investments or distributions to shareholders, even after meeting outstanding investment commitments.
