PARIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Regulatory News:
Tikehau Capital (Paris:TKO), the alternative asset management and investment group, and T&D Insurance Group, a major Japanese insurance company, have agreed to enter into a business and capital alliance.

Chikahiro Tsuboi, Representative Director and President of T&D Asset Management Co., Ltd. stated: “The European alternative asset management sector is benefiting from structural tailwinds and Tikehau Capital is ideally positioned to generate strong growth and create value for our clients in Japan. This partnership is a new step forward in the execution of our strategy and is fully aligned with our ambition to diversify our business portfolio as stated in our “Medium-Term Management Plan (FY2019-2021)” announced on June 3, 2019.”
Bruno de Pampelonne, Chairman of Tikehau Investment Management and Head of Asia stated: “We are proud to welcome T&D Asset Management as Tikehau Capital’s partner of choice to enhance our presence in Japan at a time when Japanese investors are looking to diversify their investments and demonstrate an appetite to invest in Europe.”
