Napoleon Capital is pleased to announce its fundraising with BNP Paribas Asset Management (« BNPP AM »). This financing was realized through BNP Paribas Capital Partners, BNPP AM’ multi-management specialist, who joins a group of investors including Ecole Polytechnique (X-Création) and other financial professionals to accelerate Napoleon Capital’s development.

This new stage aims to position Napoleon Capital as a new tech-centric player in algorithmic investment solutions. Its investment consulting offer builds on the latest research using Artificial Intelligence, as well as a micro-services proprietary IT infrastructure.

By partnering with Napoleon Capital, BNPP AM strengthens its expertise in quantitative management. This funding is the second collaboration between the two companies that are already partners of a dedicated fund worth several dozen million Euros. Their complementary expertises will enable Napoleon Capital to meet professional investors’ needs looking for multi-asset, liquid, uncorrelated and efficient quantitative strategies and will allow BNPP AM to expand its network of innovative partners.

Denis Panel, Head of BNPP AM’s Multi-Asset, Quantitative and Solutions Management Division (MAQS), said: “Funding Napoleon Capital, a new leader in algorithmic strategies, is part of our “quantamental” approach that combines the best quantitative and fundamental management techniques. This collaboration will help develop and provide innovative investment solutions to our clients.”

“This partnership is a major milestone in our development. Our expertise is focused on generating performance by building optimized solutions, and BNPP AM will enable us to make them investable for our clients while securing the operational scope.” Comments Stéphane Ifrah, CEO of Napoleon Capital
