About Carmignac

Founded in 1989 by Edouard Carmignac, the Carmignac Group is now one of Europe’s leading asset managers. Its capital is held entirely by managers and staff. In this way, the company's long-term viability is ensured via a stable shareholding structure, reflecting its spirit of independence. This fundamental value ensures the freedom required for successful longterm portfolio management.

With over EUR 50 billion of assets under management, Carmignac has developed a compact range of funds covering all asset classes (equities, bonds and balanced) with the objective of providing investors with consistent returns and low volatility. Notably, its flagship global balanced fund, Carmignac Patrimoine, generated positive returns in 2000, 2002 and 2008 when markets collapsed. Since its inception in 1989, the fund has generated an annualized performance of 8.20%*. The funds are actively marketed in 12 European countries: France, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Spain, the Netherlands, Austria, Sweden, the United Kingdom and Ireland. As part of its international development, Carmignac operates in Luxembourg, Frankfurt, Milan, Madrid and London. In addition, all of its funds intended for professional investors are registered in Singapore.
