About BauMont

Focusing on real estate fundamentals to deliver lasting value.

Our History

BauMont was founded in 2017 by four partners, following an amicable spin out from a leading American investment platform. BauMont’s managing partners, Robert Balick and Frederic Laurent, have invested across several market cycles, including in times of great uncertainty and capital vacuums.

The partners are highly regarded within the French and UK markets as experienced and trusted investment managers. Operating out of offices in London and Paris, BauMont primarily invests in France and the UK, with local investment and asset management teams.

The firm has 18 employees across the investment, asset management, and finance and operations teams.
