CIAM is a French asset manager, founded by two financial market specialists. The investment team is led by Catherine Berjal, whom specialized in M&A situations as soon as 1998. Her partner Anne-Sophie d’Andlau also has a history in M&A, and in Event Driven fund management.
In the first three years, CIAM ran a Merger Arbitrage fund (investing in officially announced transactions in Europe and North America). Since September 2013, the fund reoriented towards a more global management of M&A and corporate events situations (Event Driven), in particular centering the portfolio on an activist approach.
CIAM’s expertise developed by the team over the last few years, lies in its capability to generate ideas thanks to a deep understanding of corporate events, on the technical front of mergers and acquisitions, as well as through financial analysis methods and company valuations.
The fund is a Luxemburg SIF, and the asset manager is a French AMF-regulated asset management company.
We want to be a reference in Event Driven on hard catalysts and to that purpose, we have structured the asset management company around 3 poles of competencies: fund management, sales and marketing, operational/administrative management and risk management.
The fundamental principles of CIAM stand as follows: transparency, liquidity, and little correlated returns versus global financial markets.
Our extensive experience (40+ years cumulated) is dedicated to best servicing investors with the view to establishing a long term relationship based on trust.
