Tikehau Capital has launched a new UK initiative in partnership with DWS Group

RELATED TOPICS​

As part of their strategic alliance, Tikehau Capital will partner with DWS Group on a growth initiative to implement an investment strategy for small to medium-sized defined benefit pension schemes. 

This strategy will aim to provide a solution of secured income assets (SIAs), including infrastructure debt, real estate debt, direct lending, asset-backed securities, collateralised loan obligations and leveraged loans.

Since Tikehau Capital’s participation in the IPO of DWS in March 2018, and the two parties’ strategic alliance agreement established later that year, both asset management groups have continued to work together to identify and develop collaborative business opportunities.

The launch of this new strategy meets the objective of both groups to align their respective expertise in alternative investing and offer bespoke financing solutions to companies.

Over half of UK defined benefit pension schemes are in deficit, with insufficient assets to meet their liabilities. This new solution will aim to offer these schemes enhanced security of income through a diversified private and structured credit solution where diverse SIAs are combined.

For small and mid-sized defined benefit pension funds, which may have been restricted from investing in individual asset classes due to minimum size or governance requirements, this latest solution offers the opportunity to invest in SIAs. SIAs aim to offer stable long-term returns due to the contractual nature of asset cashflows, the expected resilience of the underlying assets to different economic cycles and the quality of underlying collateral.

Frédéric Giovansili, Deputy CEO of Tikehau Investment Management, says:
“We are delighted to work in partnership with DWS to launch a solution for small to medium sized pension funds which combines our expertise in direct lending and leveraged loans. This new investment strategy meets the objective of both DWS and Tikehau Capital to align our respective expertise in alternative investing and to offer bespoke financing solutions and sources of secure income to institutional investors.”
