About Us

History

BDL Capital Management is an independent investment management company founded in 2005.

For the past 15 years, we have been managing the savings of institutional clients (insurance and mutual insurance companies, pension funds, etc.), private banks and wealth management advisors.

Investment in European equities is where we excel; our in-depth company analysis is how we stand out.

With 11 analysts and industry experts, we have one of the most extensive teams in Europe.

We manage 1.5 billion euros on three strategies: :

  • Fundamental and ESG management, across BDL Rempart Europe and BDL Convictions– two funds that go back more than 10 years.
  • Quantamental management through Durandal.
  • SRI management with our fund BDL Transition, launched in 2019.

 Our team

25 co-workers share the same passion: to invest in listed European companies

We invest nearly €1.5 billion on behalf of institutional clients (insurance and mutual insurance companies, pension funds, etc.), private banks, independent financial advisors, and retail investors.

To understand these companies and their business models, each day  our 8 analysts study their annual reports, meet their management teams, and visit their production facilities.

15 people are responsible for investments. Six work in customer service, and ten ensure that BDL runs smoothly each day.
