Eric Bendahan

Eric Bendahan is CEO at Eleva Capital having set up the firm in 2014. He spent nearly nine years at Banque Syz & Co which he joined in November 2005 from AXA Investment Managers. He has over 15 years of experience in managing active and non-indexed European equity portfolios. Bendahan has a pure, bottom-up, fundamental stock picking approach to pan-European equity markets. His style is opportunistic, across all market caps and he focuses on companies with sound historic results, good visible earnings prospects and a good-quality management with clear strategic vision, operating in a sector with high barriers to entry. Direct corporate contact is the predominant part of his analysis process. Bendahan is a graduate of ESSEC and a holder of the CFA.


The fund seeks to achieve superior long term risk adjusted returns and capital growth by investing primarily in European equities and equity related securities on a long only basis.
