2022: So far In Venture Capital

Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively. In light of this, Europe and North America have been identified as the major destinations for Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC) investments.   GlobalData’s whitepaper analyzes which sectors PE/VC firms have been investing in, looking at Technology, Media, and Telecom, with these sectors recording $356 billion and a deal volume of over 10,000 deals in 2022. Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

The deal was approved by the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) and the Luxembourg Financial Sector Supervisory Commission (CSSF).

This strategic partnership will enable both firms to increase their combined market share in Switzerland.

Furthermore, the deal will create transversal revenue and development opportunities for both REYL & Cie and 1875 Finance. In particular, both companies want to play an active role in accelerating the consolidation process of the Swiss independent wealth management sector. This means more growth prospects in the short and medium term.

1875 Finance clients will gain from REYL & Cie’s corporate finance team and its expertise in M&A, structured financing, and equity and debt capital market transactions, as well as art financing.

Co-founders Olivier Bizon, Paul Kohler, Aksel Azrac and Jacques-Antoine Ormond jointly retain control of 60% of 1875 Finance and remain fully committed to its long-term development.

François Reyl, chief executive of the REYL Group, stated: “We are very pleased to finalise this strategic partnership with 1875 Finance, a leading player which shares the same entrepreneurial spirit and values, with a first-class team. This transaction shows that banks and independent managers can join forces in innovative partnerships without giving up their business model or management autonomy. We expect to build a lasting business relationship and create powerful synergies between the two entities.”

Paul Kohler, chief executive and founding partner of 1875 Finance, together with Olivier Bizon (chairman), Aksel Azrac and Jacques-Antoine Ormond, added: “We are delighted to welcome REYL as a new shareholder, as part of an agreement that opens the door to both organic development and acquisitions in Switzerland and abroad. Thanks to this unique partnership, we maintain the open architecture and entrepreneurial business model which is so valued by our clients.”

The deal was announced as far back as August 2021.
