VIDEO: Meet the most influential: Tikehau’s Mathieu Chabran, Mediterranean maestro

We meet one of private debt’s biggest influencers, Tikehau co-founder Mathieu Chabran, to talk about his love of rugby, food and the strangest thing an investor has ever asked him.


Mathieu Chabran founded Tikehau Capital in 2004 with Antoine Flamarion at a time when everyone was telling him he was too late, or too early, to make it big in the industry. He’s since proved them very wrong and Tikehau has grown into one of the largest private debt houses in Europe, making him one of our Most Influential. We caught up with him to talk about his love of rugby, Mediterranean food from his native Provence, and how one investor seemed critical of him for putting his own money at risk alongside his LPs.
