Patron Appoints Matteo Busà to Lead €200-300m of Equity Investment in Italy
Patron Capital, the pan-European institutional investor focused on property-backed investments, has appointed Matteo Busà as a Partner, leading Patron’s investments in Italy.
Matteo joins from GIC, the Singapore Sovereign Wealth Fund, where he was a Vice President. He spent 10 years with GIC in total, including eight in London, where he originated and managed investment opportunities across multiple countries and asset classes, working on both the debt and equity sides of the capital structure.
Prior to GIC, Matteo spent four years working in real estate investment, at Pirelli Real Estate and then JER Partners.
Matteo will be based in London, with a primary focus on determining and implementing Patron’s investment strategy for Italy. With experience across other markets and fund investment, Matteo will also support origination in other European markets and be involved in future fundraising activity.
Keith Breslauer, Managing Director of Patron Capital, said:
“The Italian market is very important to us and we intend to invest at least €200-300m of our funds there. We have invested in Italy for the past 18 years and, given recent regulatory actions within the banking system, we see significant future opportunities. Matteo brings with him new relationships and new ideas that will position us well to take advantage of Italy’s ongoing recovery.”
Matteo Busà said:
“Patron has an exceptional reputation in terms of its approach, the quality of its investments, the returns it delivers and its company culture. Successful opportunistic investing requires creativity and a range of on-the-ground contacts and I’m looking forward to working with the team to take advantage of the opportunities the Italian market brings, while also supporting the company’s activity in other markets across Europe.”

Oxford Nanopore Prevails in Patent Ruling against Pacific Biosciences22.1.2019 17:04 | Pressemelding
Today the European Patent Office revoked Pacific Biosciences patent EP3045542 with claims to a single molecule sequencing process wherein two strands of DNA are linked by a connecting nucleic acid. The validity of the patent had been challenged by Oxford Nanopore. The EPO ruled that the claims to a single molecule sequencing process were unsupported in the application and that the application only supported a template-directed synthesis sequencing method. As Pacific Biosciences were unwilling to accept this change, the patent was revoked. The decision by the EPO is consistent with a recent decision by the International Trade Commission (ITC) to limit the claims of a related Pacific Biosciences US patent to template-directed synthesis.
