E.I.M. S.A. was founded in 1992 by Arpad Busson, a recognized pioneer in the nascent hedge fund industry, who had started promoting hedge fund strategies in the 1980s. Responding to client demand for more diversified hedge fund exposures, Mr. Busson founded the EIM Group to provide tailored fund-of-fund management services.
Over more than 20 years, EIM built its business to meet the demands of the most discerning institutional clients and became an industry standard-setter in hedge fund due diligence, selection, portfolio management and risk analysis. EIM has been an active promoter of greater transparency in the hedge fund industry for many years. EIM’s processes are highly structured and rigorous and have been certified under ISO quality management norms since 1999.
In December 2013, E.I.M. S.A. and Gottex Fund Management announced their intention to merge their businesses. The merger was completed in September 2014.
