It all began back in 1988 under the Sogéposte brand. At the end of the 90s, the management company demonstrated its commitment to responsible finance with the launch of its first ethical funds. This conviction was reaffirmed in 2003 with the creation of an SRI (Socially Responsible Investment) department.
In 2015, Aegon Asset Management, a leading European shareholder, acquired a 25% stake in the company. This marks the start of the marketing of the products of La Banque Postale Asset Management in Europe.
In that same year, La Banque Postale Asset Management acquired 100% of Fédéris Gestion d'Actifs, a subsidiary of Malakoff Médéric, an acquisition that would enable it to strengthen its offering, particularly in corporate private debt.
In 2018, La Banque Postale Asset Management acquired Tocqueville Finance, a recognised “boutique” in conviction management, particularly Small & Mid Caps and Value.
A new page in the company's history was also turned in 2018 with the founding choice to become 100% SRI by 2020, an ambition that materialised 2 years later with all of its open-ended funds labelled ISR [SRI] (French government label).
In October 2020, La Banque Postale Asset Management will sell its "vanilla" Fixed Income business to Ostrum, to concentrate, with its subsidiary Tocqueville Finance, on 100% SRI multi-specialist conviction management.
In 2023, our image is changing, and so are our ambitions. La .Banque Postale Asset Management is pooling its forces and resources under a new visual identity and a new name: LBP AM. This choice affirms our attachment to our shareholder, La Banque Postale, and responds to several challenges: modernising, supporting our visibility, strengthening our model as a pioneering multi-specialist SRI manager and continuing our growth in France and in Europe.
In the same year, LBP AM entered into exclusive negotiations with the Primonial Group to acquiring LFDE*.
In 2023, La Banque Postale Asset Management becomes LBP AM, with a new visual identity.
In 2023, the company will step up its development with the planned acquisition of La Financière de l'Echiquier*, a growth accelerator for third-party distributors in France and Europe. At the same time, LBP AM is expanding its range of real and private assets.
These developments are fully in line with its history and reflect its DNA: a player on the move, capable of renewing and adapting as well as of innovating for its customers, while remaining focused on its primary mission: to put its convictions at the service of financial, environmental and social performance.
