One business line only: asset management
Carmignac has chosen to manage a narrow range of strategies to achieve stronger capital growth for its clients.
Rather than following the trend, we prefer realistic Fund management based on our expertise.
The company’s flagship products, Carmignac Investissement, Carmignac Patrimoine and Carmignac Securité, were launched in 1989 with a heavy emphasis on emerging and international markets. These three Funds have consistently demonstrated their long-term resilience, especially in periods of sharp decline. This robustness confirms Carmignac’s ability to reconcile performance with risk management**.
