Channel Capital partners with asset management Veteran Des Mac Intyre to expand in the U.S., start up Eolas Capital

Channel Capital Pty Ltd. (Channel), a leading Australian multi-affiliate investment management company servicing more than A$16 billion in assets, today announced it is partnering with Des Mac Intyre, former CEO of Mellon Investments Corporation, to form Eolas Capital, an investment management incubator in New York.

Eolas Capital—pronounced O-las—Channel’s first subsidiary in the United States, will provide partner capital, business platform and industry expertise to promising investment talent in the U.S. and non-U.S. managers seeking to expand in the world’s largest asset management market. Channel offers similar capabilities, including distribution, marketing and responsible entity services for a select group of investment management companies and their clients across the institutional, family office, high net worth and advisor-led investor spaces in Australia.

“Channel’s platform has helped build durable investment managers in Australia for nearly a decade, and we’re confident that with Des as our partner, we will expand successfully in the United States,” said Glen Holding, Channel’s co-founder and managing director.

“I’m excited and energized by the opportunity to embark on an entrepreneurial venture with Channel Capital,” said Mac Intyre, managing director of Eolas Capital. “In Gaelic, Eolas means knowledge and experience, and that’s exactly what we’ll provide to boutique managers. Investment management is a dynamic industry where agile firms with differentiated investment ideas and operational excellence can thrive.”

Mac Intyre brings more than 30 years of asset management experience to this new venture. Before Eolas Capital, he was chairman and CEO of Mellon Investments Corporation, a multi-asset solutions subsidiary of BNY Mellon with $613 billion in client assets as of Dec. 31, 2020. Earlier, he was BNY Mellon’s CEO of U.S. asset management and chairman and CEO of Standish Mellon Asset Management. Mac Intyre also held executive positions for Bridgewater Associates, Pareto Partners and General Motors Asset Management.

Established in 2013, Channel has 30 employees globally, and is currently partnered with eight investment management firms.

New York-based Kudu Investment Management, LLC, a provider of permanent capital solutions to asset and wealth managers globally, acquired a minority stake in Channel Capital in 2020 and is helping finance Eolas Capital.
