Stockholm (HedgeNordic) – Schroders has combined all of its private markets businesses under the roof of newly formed Schroders Capital, which will oversee over $65 billion in assets under management. Schroders Capital encompasses the asset manager’s range of private equity, securitised products, and asset-based finance, private debt, real estate, infrastructure, insurance-linked securities, as well as impact specialist BlueOrchard.
“In the Nordic region, we see tremendous potential for growth within private assets. We are therefore very happy to launch Schroders Capital today,” says Henrik Jonsson, the country head for the Nordic region at Schroders. “Bringing all private assets under one roof will provide clarity and transparency to clients as we continue to serve our clients with innovative investment strategies and solutions.”
Schroders Capital will be led by Georg Wunderlin, who will serve as global head of the newly launched private markets arm. Each asset class under the umbrella of Schroders Capital will continue to maintain a high level of autonomy, while also benefiting from knowledge-sharing and collaboration with the other asset classes within the new brand and across the Schroders Group.
