Funding of claims for H2O investors

Deminor is funding a legal action to be initiated by investors having suffered substantial losses following investments made in certain funds managed by H2O AM, an asset manager part of the Natixis group.

Investors are stuck in side-pockets whose underlying illiquid, non-rated assets are related to companies affiliated to Lars Windhorst, a businessman who has a track-record in not paying his debts. To date, no pay-out by the side-pockets has taken place and it is doubtful whether any payment will ever be made by Lars Windshort/ H2O to those investors.

The efforts in this matter were initiated by the French association "Collectif Porteurs H2O” ( (the "Association"), made up as of today of more than 6,200 members. Deminor is supporting the initiatives of the Association and is funding this litigation on a “no cure, no pay” basis.

A first group of 6,200 investors had been created and will file the litigation in October 2023. The Association has decided to give the opportunity to investors who have still not joined the action to register via the link below and be part of a second group which will join the ongoing action early 2024.
