Crescita del 46% per il fondo gestito da ESVM

Si è chiuso con una crescita del net asset value a doppia cifra, oltre le previsioni di budget, l'esercizio 2010 per il comparto Special Situations del fondo di private equity Novium Opportunity Umbrella SICAV, amministrato da Zurigo e gestito da ExecutiveSurf Venture Management Italia. E ciò nonostante il rallentamento degli investimenti registratosi nello stesso periodo, dovuto in parte alla selezione delle opportunità fatta dal team di ExecutiveSurf ed in parte ad esigenze di asset allocation da parte del management della sicav, necessarie per l'equilibrio del portafoglio. Nel prezzo, che recepisce ampiamente le riserve prudenziali del fund administrator, non rientra il goodwill dei numerosi progetti in fase di roll out all'interno del portafoglio di investimenti. Il 2010 è stato infatti un anno di joint venture, accordi commerciali e piani di sviluppo di nuovi prodotti che daranno i loro frutti soprattutto nel triennio 2011-2013. Gli impieghi del Novium Special Situations sono gestiti da un team dedicato appartenente al Venture Management, la business unit di ExecutiveSurf rivolta al segmento…
