Axa joins Caisse to save portfortfolio

Paris-based Axa Private Equity has entered into a partnership with Canadian fund manager Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec to better support their portfolio companies.

The partnership will see the two firms share market information in Europe, North America, Asia and the Middle East.

The firms have been quick to note that despite the new partnership, they will both maintain independence in terms of conduct of business. The two organisations will provide more than €1.5bn to implement the agreement.
