Originally positioned on buyout operations, NiXEN began its first operations in 2005 with the NiXEN I vehicle. The management company then became independent in 2010 following the spin-off from Natixis Private Equity and the creation of its second vehicle in 2010, NiXEN II.


Through its first two funds, NiXEN has acquired a successful experience in majority operations and has successfully defined and developed, alongside its portfolio companies, development strategies through both internal and external growth. The company has also been able to support its companies internationally through organic growth or successive build-ups.


Since 2019, NiXEN has been successfully developing a co-investment activity alongside other leading investors, and has integrated in 2022 a new complementary activity of Advisory | Fund Management (started in 2017).
