Michele Mezzarobba,

After being developed within Massena Partners, this new independent entity will allow us to design and structure innovative unlisted investment solutions for all our investors.

Essling Capital is bound by performance and systematically invests alongside its investors in complete transparency.”


Founded in April 2017 following the spin-off of the Private Equity and private wealth management activities of Massena Partners, Essling Capital team was created within the unlisted assets department of the latter company.

In the wake of this operation, Essling Capital continues to manage the same funds, with the same investment strategy. The company is expanding by the integration of new experts.
