About Amiral Gestion

Founded in 2003, Amiral Gestion is an independent asset management company wholly owned by its directors and staff. The company manages more than EUR 4 billion on behalf of institutional investors, private banks, family offices and individuals, through several institutional mandates and five mutual funds (Fonds Commun de Placement: FCP): Sextant PEA, Sextant Europe, Sextant PME, Sextant Autour du monde, and Sextant Grand Large.

Amiral Gestion’s investment teams benefit from their considerable knowledge of European small and mid caps and their close proximity to management teams.

The company has an extensive international expertise, having conducted investments abroad for more than 10 years—an indication that, like the company itself, investors are no longer confined by borders and thus require international expertise.

Our management approach is based on a fundamental analysis of companies and long-term investments in those that we understand and whose value we are able to increase. The market offers many opportunities for patient investors who ignore short-term trends and concentrate on the fundamental value of companies.
