Deliver superior long-term returns

Varenne Capital Partners

Varenne Capital Partners (‘Varenne’) is a process-driven, global investment manager whose purpose is to deliver superior long-term returns with the minimum necessary risk-taking. We strive to achieve this by deploying complementary investment frameworks in a single strategy (Long Equity, Short Equity, Merger Arbitrage and Tail Risk Hedging).


The firm adopts a ‘brokers are not welcome’ policy and relies exclusively on internal origination and proprietary research. Frameworks are the result of years of research and development and comprise original methodologies, formalized processes, dedicated teams of analysts and bespoke information systems. Research is employed as a foundation for managing both AIF and UCITS strategies through several investment vehicles.


Varenne Capital Partners is based in Paris, France, where it was founded by its current management team in 2003. It operated as an advisor to VEGA Finance – private banking unit of the Caisse des Dépôts et Consignations/Caisse d'Epargne Group – before establishing itself as an independent investment manager in 2007.

Our firm is registered with the Autorité des Marchés Financiers under the reference GP-06 000004.
