“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.”


Essling Capital was founded after a spin-off between Massena Partners’ private equity and wealth management activities.
