Company overview

Acquired by its current management in 2009, the independent and entrepreneurial asset management company, Arbevel, is a reference in the European small and mid-caps.

Driven by a guiding principle centered around financial, extra-financial, and strategic analysis of companies, Arbevel defines itself as a “Research House” dedicated to asset management services. Over the past years, the company has diversified its range of products and services to offer clients open-end funds (equity, bonds and diversified), a discretionary management services, and an expertise in non-listed companies (private equity and private debt).

Our approach

As the majority shareholder, our team supports the company and its management in its development to achieve a critical size in a fragmented market. Arbevel’s ambitions align with the core expertise of Weinberg Capital Partners and translate into an acceleration of the group’s organic and external growth drivers in the medium term, to create an expanded and differentiating offering.
