The AIFM manages each Fund in the interest of respective investors and therefore in a totally independent and autonomous way from other group companies.
Investments and divestments are made (and the relevant participations are held) by the specific intermediate holding companies. Decisions over investments and exit, including the exercise of voting rights in investee company general shareholders’ meetings, are resolved by the board of the relevant holding company in an autonomous manner, independently from other group companies, following the applicable statutory and governance rules. The day-by-day management of each investee company is under the exclusive responsibility of the relevant board of directors and management.
