Macquarie Investment Management is to acquire ValueInvest Asset Management, a Luxembourg-based specialist in value investing in global and Japanese equities.

ValueInvest has assets of approximately €4 billion under management, and the deal with Macquarie is expected to close in mid-2018. The firm was founded in 1998 and has a team of 17 professionals. It will continue to be led by Jesper Alsing, chief executive officer, and Jens Hansen, chief investment officer. It will become part of Macquarie’s multi-boutique structure lead by its global head of equities, John Leonard.

Macquarie global head, Ben Bruck, commented: “Investors today need skilled active managers across a diverse range of asset classes. ValueInvest will be an excellent complement to our existing high-conviction equity strategies, and we believe Macquarie’s multi-boutique equity structure and global investment platform will provide a natural fit for the ValueInvest team.” And Alsing added: “We were attracted by Macquarie’s breadth and resources as a leading global asset management company which will enable us to better serve our clients. We will remain strongly aligned with our clients, focused on delivering strong risk-adjusted returns over the long term.”
