Co-founded by Bruno Crastes our CEO, and Vincent Chailley our CIO, H2O AM was set up in 2010(1) with the aim of providing clients with the opportunity to achieve high, risk-adjusted returns with daily liquidity. Our investment managers have, on average, at least 15 years’ experience working on global fixed income markets. As most of us have worked together for over a decade, we are already an established and well respected team.

With 31 investment professionals, focus and flexibility of a boutique investment management company. Our compact size enables us to make quick decisions and act efficiently, yet we also enjoy the security that larger investment companies offer: we are backed by one of Europe’s largest asset managers through our partnership with Natixis Investment Managers.
