Regulatory News:

2021 was an outstanding year for Tikehau Capital (Paris:TKO). The firm is reaping the benefits of its differentiating strategy with record-breaking levels of net new money achieved in 2021, reaching €6.3bn for the full year, a 50% increase compared to the €4.2bn average yearly fundraising achieved over the past 3 years. As a consequence, Tikehau Capital will reach over €33.5bn in assets under management at 31 December 2021.

Client demand for Tikehau Capital strategies remained strong all along the year 2021, which was marked by a particularly strong finish with net new money of €2.5bn recorded in the sole 4th quarter. This is a new historical quarterly record for Tikehau Capital, representing 1.5x the firm’s previous record level achieved in Q2 2021 at €1.9bn of net new money.

The excellent fundraising performance of 2021 was achieved across Tikehau Capital’s entire asset management platform and validates once more the relevance of the Group’s unique model, with high alignment of interests, strong investment performance and constant innovation at its core:

  • Tikehau Capital’s flagship strategies are scaling up rapidly, as evidenced by Tikehau Direct Lending V, the Group’s flagship strategy in direct lending, which already attracted nearly €2bn of client commitments at end-December 2021, already close to the total size of its predecessor fund, with fundraising still ongoing. In addition, Tikehau Capital’s North American infrastructure strategy1 successfully closed its second vintage in Q4 with total capital raised of $700m (c.€615m²), a 133% size increase compared to its predecessor. Finally, 2021 was marked by the final closing of Tikehau Capital’s second vintage of European Special Opportunities Strategy (TSO II) which exceeded expectations with €617m of total commitments.
  • In 2021, Tikehau Capital enhanced its product range for private investors, which offer significant growth potential. Two unit-linked products have been successfully launched in France, one in private debt and the other one in private equity, attracting a total of around €200m of commitments at 31 December 2021, just a few months after launch. These initiatives, in addition to the growth at Sofidy as well as the two listed REITs and crowdfunding platforms operated by Tikehau Capital, are putting the Group in a strong position to capture the growing demand from private investors to access alternative assets.
  • Tikehau Capital also demonstrated its strong ability to innovate successfully. For example, the firm successfully launched its first secondary private debt strategy which attracted total commitments of c.$310m (c.€275m2) at end-December 2021. 2021 is also a milestone year for Tikehau Capital’s CLO business, with the successful reset and upsizing of European CLOs I and II, the closing of European CLO VI as well as the successful launch and closing in Q4 of the firm’s first US CLO for a size of $400m (c.€350m²). In addition, 2021 was marked by the final closing of the firm’s cybersecurity and digital trust fund3 with €175m of client commitments, exceeding the initial €150m target.
  • Finally, leveraging on its expertise, its platform and track-record, Tikehau Capital has been affirming in 2021 its position as partner of choice for European governments in providing financing to the real economy and support the post-Covid recovery, with material successes recorded in France, Spain and Belgium.

Building on these successes, Tikehau Capital recorded a record-high €6.3bn in net new money for its asset management activities for the full year 2021. Private debt and real assets accounted for approximately three quarters of net new money, while Capital markets strategies and Private equity respectively accounted for c.15% and c.10% of the total.

In addition, in December 2021, the firm’s sponsored-SPAC, Pegasus Entrepreneurs, successfully raised €210m in a private placement, which was upsized due to strong investor demand. This marked the second successful SPAC launch for Tikehau Capital in 2021, following the IPO of Pegasus Europe which raised €500m in April, becoming the largest European SPAC to date. These achievements4 make Tikehau Capital the only European sponsor to successfully launch two European SPACs in 2021 despite a more challenging market sentiment.

Leveraging its multi-local platform, its seasoned investment teams and its strong corporate culture, Tikehau Capital is ideally positioned to capture the rapidly growing demand from global investors for alternative assets.

As a consequence of 2021 strong achievements, Tikehau Capital will reach over €33.5bn in assets under management at 31 December 2021.
