AEW Europe purchased private debt business

AEW Europe confirms the completion of the acquisition of Natixis Investment Managers International’s private debt business, which originates and structures infrastructure and private debt real asset investments. 


Rob Wilkinson, European CEO at AEW, commented: “The completion of this acquisition represents a key opportunity for our business, complementing our existing foothold in real estate debt, which has grown rapidly over the past 11 years, and creating an enlarged private debt platform. Private debt is a strategic growth area for us, with strong appeal and an attractive risk profile for our clients in a changing interest rate environment. Following the announcement of Jonathan’s appointment and our ambitions in this area, we’ve had a number of positive conversations with our clients, and we’re excited for what the future holds.”


Jonathan Stevens, Head of Private Debt at AEW, added: “Since joining AEW in October I have been extremely impressed by the private debt team and its offering to clients. I’m excited to be leading the strategic growth of AEW’s private debt platform alongside my colleagues. Our near-term focus is on continuing to manage our portfolio of private debt investments, while also creating new investment products that meet institutional clients’ requirements for long term secure income with low volatility, capital efficiency and strong relative value.”
