Alfi Rogge Partners – a new joint venture between Rogge Global Partners and Alfi Partners – has established offices for marketing and client service in both Paris and Geneva in order to develop and service its business in French-speaking Europe and capitalise on the growing demand in the region for global fixed income.
Alfi Rogge Partners is aimed at providing investors in France, Monaco, Belgium, Luxembourg and French-speaking Switzerland with local access to Rogge’s four core areas of expertise: Developed Markets, Investment Grade Credit, Global High Yield and Emerging Markets (Debt and Currency). In addition, Rogge has recently grown its business in Liability-Driven Investment (LDI) and has gained significant wins with a unique enhanced passive approach in Investment Grade Credit. While Rogge is well known for creating tailor-made portfolios for its clients, the 112 person firm also offers a range of pooled funds covering its major strategies.
Olaf Rogge, Senior Partner, CEO and co-CIO of Rogge Global Partners, says: ”Alfi was an obvious choice for us due to the company’s strong track record in working with best-of-breed asset managers and helping them to grow their business in the region.”
Eric Bonneville and Francois Defferriere, founders of Alfi Partners, say: “We are extremely excited about working with Rogge, one of the most respected names in global fixed income. Their consistent philosophy and strong track record makes them a unique and attractive proposition for investors. Our joint venture will bring this expertise to French-speaking Europe, and provide local representation in keeping with Rogge’s commitment to bespoke client service.”
