A few days after the announcement of the acquisition of the Italian asset manager Astor Investment Advisors, DECALIA Asset Management is implementing its expansion plans in the Italian market with the registration of its DECALIA range of Luxembourg funds and the recruitment of Jürgen Mahler as Head of Business Development for the DECALIA funds in Italy.
The 6 UCITS strategies registered in Italy focus on 4 investment themes deemed to have high long-term potential: disintermediation in the European banking sector, the quest for yield, new consumer trends and market inefficiencies.
With more than 25 years’ experience, Jürgen Mahler is a recognized figure in the Italian funds industry. Prior to joining DECALIA, Jürgen Mahler was Country Head for Oddo Meriten Asset Management for nearly 6 years.
DECALIA Asset Management pursues its expansion plans by establishing itself in Italy, one of its priority target markets. Indeed, DECALIA has taken over Astor Investment Advisors SIM SpA, a Milan-based asset management company. This acquisition not only allows DECALIA to set foot on the Italian market but also opens the door for further developments in other European countries, thanks to the European passport. Besides its original activity, Astor will now widen its scope to dedicate also to private wealth management and to distributing DECALIA funds.
DECALIA Asset Management is one of the two finalists shortlisted for the “WealthBriefing Swiss Awards 2017” in the “External Asset Managers” category.

DECALIA has recruited Clément Maclou to manage its two thematic funds “DECALIA Silver Generation” and “DECALIA Millennials”. He will head a team of three people dedicated to changes in consumer trends related to generational changes. Before joining DECALIA, Clément Maclou spent 7 years building a strong track record in the area of new consumer trends, with performances for a fund dedicated to population ageing that earned him a 5-star ranking with Morningstar and an AA rating with Citywire. With this recruitment and assets under management that now stand at CHF 2 billion, DECALIA pursues its development strategy centered on two complementary areas: private wealth management and asset management.
Geneva-based asset management firm DECALIA Asset Management pursues its development strategy by launching its investment fund family DECALIA, six months after obtaining its investment fund management licence in Switzerland (CISA). The 5 UCITS-compliant strategies launched initially within the Luxembourg SICAV are focused around four investment themes considered to be promising on the long-term: disintermediation of the European banking sector, quest for yield, new consumer trends and market inefficiencies in Europe. Other strategies should be launched in the coming months. Restricted for the moment to qualified institutional investors, the DECALIA funds are currently being registered in Switzerland and in several European countries for public distribution. Furthermore, DECALIA also offers a private debt fund restricted to qualified investors and manages OYSTER Italian Opportunities, one of the best Italian equity funds.
DECALIA Asset Management has passed an important stage in its development plans as it has been granted by the Swiss regulatory authority FINMA the agreement to manage investment funds as per CISA. At the end of 2014, DECALIA has announced its intention to complement its wealth management activity by diversifying into the creation and management of high added value products. The grant of this agreement will thus allow DECALIA to accelerate its expansion plans by launching its own investment fund family.
