Financial adviser to RAM AI on the sale of a majority stake to Mediobanca.


On 23 November 2017, RAM AI, one of Europe’s leading systematic investment managers based in Geneva with CHF4.9bn of AUM, announced that it had entered into a long-term strategic partnership with Mediobanca, the Italian listed diversified banking group, pursuant to which the latter will acquire a 69% stake in RAM AI.

The transaction is expected to bring several benefits, including a reinforced institutional framework, a long-term seeding commitment from Mediobanca to funds managed by RAM AI that will help foster innovation and research, and an improved distribution network across Europe. Under the terms of the strategic partnership, RAM AI will maintain its organizational and operational independence, with the founding partners retaining significant stakes in RAM AI and remaining committed to its development for a minimum period of ten years. Each partner will also reinvest a meaningful part of their proceeds in RAM AI’s funds. As the historical seeder and institutional shareholder of RAM AI, the REYL Group will also retain a 7.5% stake in the Company and will continue to operate as a preferred partner and anchor investor in the RAM AI’s products.

RAM AI is headquartered in Geneva with additional offices in Zurich and Luxembourg.
