Fidante delivers compelling investment opportunities to investors by partnering with specialist asset managers.
As part of the Challenger Limited Group, an ASX-listed investment management firm providing customers with financial security in retirement, we operate a global asset management business encompassing:
Fidante Partners forms long term alliances with talented investment teams to create, support and grow specialist asset management businesses. Our deep experience in asset management, extensive network of investor relationships and solid operational infrastructure enables these teams to focus on what they do best: manage money.
Fidante Capital (previously Dexion Capital plc) is a European specialist in originating and supporting alternative asset strategies in a listed fund format. Our team partners with high calibre managers on corporate advisory, research, distribution and market making services, providing investors with efficient, marked-to-market access to alternative investment opportunities that may otherwise be out of reach.
Fidante Partners’ first specialist investment business was formed in 2005. We have since grown to become Australia’s leading multi-boutique asset manager.
In mid-2015, Fidante Partners acquired European alternative investments group, Dexion Capital plc, allowing Fidante’s unique business model to continue to expand. Dexion Capital was subsequently rebranded to Fidante Capital, a division of Fidante Partners.
The acquisition enabled our European business to become a specialist in alternative asset strategies – a key area of investor interest and demand.
Our diverse range of managers span traditional and alternative asset classes; liquid and illiquid. We now have a global platform offering strategies that resonate across institutional, wholesale, family office and retail investor channels.
Our boutique partners have regularly been named in the ‘fastest growing’ managers list in industry surveys in Australia, particularly through their incubation and growth phases.1
