Mirabaud Patrimoine Vivant and Mirabaud Lifestyle Impact and Innovation take a minority stake in French Luxury brand Fusalp

Paris May 2022 – Two of Mirabaud Asset Management’s private equity funds have taken a joint stake in Fusalp, a French skiwear brand.

Founded in 1952, the French company based in the Alps is best known for its early technical advancements such as contour-fit ski pants, ski stirrup pants and one-piece suits worn by the French national ski teams in the 1960s. After hitting hard times in the mid-1980s, Fusalp was purchased by siblings Sophie and Philippe Lacoste, grandchildren of tennis legend and Lacoste founder René Lacoste, and former Lacoste executive Alexandre Fauvet in 2014.

The investment dovetails perfectly with the goals of both Mirabaud Patrimoine Vivant and Mirabaud Lifestyle Impact and Innovation, by supporting the growth of European enterprises that showcase unique expertise with entrepreneurial roots and sustainable goals.
