The acquisition of Degroof Petercam is complete, and Indosuez Wealth Management, a division of Crédit Agricole, becomes the main shareholder along with its previous stakeholder CLdN Cobelfret.

After receiving the necessary permits from the banks and competition authorities, the deal enables the Degroof Petercam teams to collaborate with Indosuez Wealth Management.

It increases Crédit Agricole’s footprint in Belgium and creates a great deal of synergy between its many business segments.

This acquisition is one of the most notable industrial deals in Europe during the past decade.

Indosuez Wealth Management, which has been serving its clients for over 150 years, is presently active in 16 countries, mostly in Europe, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East.

With €200bn ($217bn) in client assets, roughly €1.6bn in net banking income, and 4,500 staff, the new group will become a European specialist in wealth management.
