Edmond de Rothschild confirms its Corporate Finance ambitions by recruiting a team based in Lyon

Press release - 9/6/2018

This move is part of the development strategy adopted by Edmond de Rothschild, designed to bolster its relationship with family business and investment funds in Southeast France, a region benefiting from strong economic growth.

The seven-strong team, which moved from DC Advisory, will be based in Lyon and will continue to be led by Nicolas Durieux. Having advised on over 70 transactions in recent years, it has demonstrated the relevance of a regional base for small & mid cap M&A advisory services.

With in-depth knowledge of the local economic fabric and investment funds and with expertise in specific sectors such as Health, the Lyon corporate finance team will also be supported by the Edmond de Rothschild private banking teams based in Lyon and Marseille, which are recognised for their excellence. The combination of consulting expertise in corporate finance and private banking/wealth engineering makes it possible to integrate strategic, industrial and asset-related dimensions upstream of transactions and to foster long-term relationships with clients.

“The team is enthusiastic about the idea of joining Edmond de Rothschild Corporate Finance in order to supplement the regional services available. We share the same commitment to excellence and the independence of advice provided to our clients. We aim to carry out around 10 transactions a year. Our collaboration with teams that are recognised and well-established in private banking will obviously be a positive factor in our regional development”, comments Nicolas Durieux, Managing Director.

“The team is continuing its excellent progress. With these recruitments, Edmond de Rothschild now offers one of France's leading corporate finance teams specialising in the small & mid cap segment. We benefit from a unique business model built on all of the Group’s strengths. We are delighted to welcome Nicolas and his team and we are certain that this will enable us to step up our growth”, says Philippe Duval, Chairman of Edmond de Rothschild Corporate Finance.

Nicolas Durieux is joining the Management Committee of Edmond de Rothschild Corporate Finance chaired by Philippe Duval.
