We build strong partnerships with our investors

Since its foundation in 1996, Ardian has attracted a large and diverse investor base that now numbers more than 1,000. To support our growth, we have built an outstanding team of investor relations professionals who ensure every LP receives a fast, personal service, based on diligence, transparency and responsiveness. Our investors’ willingness to deepen their relationship with us over time, committing to succeeding generations of our funds and adding new asset classes, bears witness to the success of our approach. On average, Ardian investors now hold more than three of our products. We attribute this to our strong, long-term investment performance and our deep-rooted culture of service.

Our goal is to deliver a world-class service to our LPs that combines personal relationships with intuitive digital tools that will allow them to access the information they need when they need it.

Benoît Verbrugghe Member of the Executive Committee

Local Investor Relations Managers

As our investor base has become larger and more global, we have steadily expanded our team of investor relations professionals, who are spread across our global network of offices. Being close to our investors ensures we can deliver the highest level of service and build strong, long-lasting investor partnerships.

Comprehensive and transparent reporting

Ardian achieves industry-leading levels of transparency in its investment reporting. We were among the first private investment managers to include information on the ESG performance of our portfolio companies in our quarterly reports to investors – an increasingly important topic to many of them.

Innovative reporting capability

Our investor relationships now span successive fund generations and multiple products. To accommodate this we have developed comprehensive, interactive reporting which offers complete performance transparency. Through pioneering reporting technology, we provide a single, consolidated view of an investor’s commitments in funds managed or advised by Ardian, including individual cash flow projections. The investor relations team also provides an extensive range of additional reports and statements throughout the year, augmented by quarterly conference calls and an Annual General Meeting where investors can review and discuss Ardian’s latest investment activites.
