Our approach

Partnerships with dedicated teams

Our flexible structure favours an opportunistic and responsive approach which enables us to identify tomorrow's investment themes and build teams with the best expertise to ensure project success.

An offer composed of 11 specific areas of expertise across 3 main themes

  • Development capital

    ​​As an active minority investor, we assist entrepreneurs and families throughout their company's entire growth cycle. We target high-growth companies that are both innovative and have technological advantages. Our financial returns are based on sustainable company growth rather than on financial engineering and leverage.

    Our expertise in development capital has positioned our Group as one of the most highly recognised and oldest companies in the field in Europe. More specifically, we have particularly strong experience in the healthcare field, a sector with which our Group has been involved for many years.

  • Emerging markets

    ​​Our Group takes an active part in emerging markets by providing financing, technical expertise and strategic international partners. We invest in high-growth companies operating in key sectors of the economy. Our portfolio construction is diversified with investments in shareholders' equity and debt to secure attractive returns.

    We are very active in sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and China. Each of our teams has extensive experience in these different markets.

  • Real assets

    ​​We finance infrastructures that provide structural and social benefits to local communities thanks to investments in sustainable assets that are respectful of the environment. The assets are secured and well-managed to generate stable revenue over the long term for our investors.

    Our Group has historically been present in European infrastructures and is among the most recognised finance advisors in Europe. We invest both in shareholder's equity and debt in transport and social infrastructure, and in niche projects including forestry, soil remediation and luxury hotels.
