Largillière Finance - 18 June 2021
It is important to know that our clients generally entrust us with the transaction of their lives. Being an investment banker is exciting because I accompany clients while contributing to the realization of their life project or their strategic project.
Largillière Finance is involved in 4 main areas of activity: the acquisition of companies, the sale of companies, which means that we are always on both sides, fund raising and pure advice to managers and shareholders.
I use the term entrepreneur very deliberately because it is one of the characteristics of small and mid-cap companies. Our clients are both the operational managers of the company and the majority or even sole shareholder managers of the company. Our mission is to provide them with a variety of perspectives in order to perfectly align the personal interests of the executive with the interests of the company in a value-creating vision.
We are frequently asked why an entrepreneur wishes to sell or not his company, his group, his family group. Many managers, many investors, many shareholders wonder about the meaning of their actions. Largillière Finance, as a specialist in small and mid-cap transactions, is at their side to help them and to light their way. As investment bankers, it is our job at Largillière Finance to accompany our clients in order to help them make decisions on a rational basis.
Being an investment banker in small and mid-cap companies means, for example, ensuring the long-term future of a company by preparing its transfer in two or three years' time by integrating part of the management into the capital. It also means bringing in an investment fund to finance a growth project. It also means backing a company with another industrial player with whom we have been able to identify industrial synergies that create value.
With offices in Paris, Lyon, Brussels and Geneva, Largillière Finance is an independent investment bank dedicated to assisting managers and shareholders of small and medium-sized companies with their capital transactions: company sales and acquisitions, financing (capital and/or debt), financial engineering (valuation, etc.) and financial strategy.
